League Cycling Instructors (LCIs) are certified to teach the Smart Cycling classes using the League of American Bicyclist (LAB) curriculum. Their goal is to help people feel more secure about getting on a bike, to create a mindset that bikes are treated as a vehicle, and to ensure that people on bicycles know how to ride safely and legally. LCIs are members of the LAB and have completed an intense 3-day seminar training. LAB certified instructors are active within the bicycling community and are covered by the LAB liability insurance. Raleigh is hosting a LCI Seminar June 15-17 at the Walnut Creek Wetland Center. Register for the seminar here.

CommuteSmart Raleigh and GoTriangle are providing two scholarships to the Raleigh LCI Seminar for active and experienced bicyclists in the community. The scholarship will cover the cost of the LCI Seminar ($350) for two participants. No travel costs, late fees, or other costs will be covered. A successful applicant will be required to lead/assist with one Bike to Work Day Pit Stop or a Smart Cycling Class within one year of completing the LCI Seminar.

Check out our new slogan for the WalkRaleigh brand! We chose "for all walks of life" because we felt it best described our efforts towards making walking easy and available for all ages and abilities in Raleigh! Thanks to everyone who got their creative juices flowing and sent us a submission to the contest. 

 Daylight Savings ended Sunday, November 5th and most people's commutes to and from work are now a lot darker.
