Nicole Burgess ~ League Cycling Instructor

League Cycling Instructors (LCIs) are certified to teach the Smart Cycling classes to children as well as adults. 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 bikes know how to ride safely and legally. LCIs are members of the League and have completed an intense 3-day seminar training. Our certified instructors are active within the bicycling community and are covered by the League’s liability insurance.

“Let’s Ride” Camp

Bike Skills and Safety Course for Elementary School Students.
Getting – and keeping – kids on bikes.

The USA Cycling “Let’s Ride” Camp is a nationwide bicycle safety and basic bike skills education curriculum, taught to elementary school aged children through summer day camps, physical education classes and after school programs throughout the USA.

The Let’s Ride Camp curriculum is intended to be 1-2 hours in length and will be free for all participants. Let’s Ride Camps will be occurring across the USA, hosted by local USA Cycling licensed coaches, with a view to:

  • Teach kids how to ride their bikes safely
  • Provide a first point of contact with USA Cycling for families and future riders
  • Provide access to bikes for kids who would not otherwise have such an opportunity

Host a Let’s Ride Camp
Let us know you want to host a camp!

Our goal is to make delivering a Let’s Ride Camp as simple as possible for you – the coach.  You can deliver a camp if you have an active USAC Coach License (Level 3, 2, 1). Click here to find out more about obtaining a coach license.

USA Cycling will provide the curriculum, a list of materials needed (we will cover the cost), and all the information you need to make your camp a success. We are also working with industry partners to provide bike equipment (e.g., bikes & helmets) where necessary and appropriate.
