About the author

I'm a native St. Louisan and daily bicycle commuter. I've been a bicycle safety instructor since 2008, but became truly excited about the transformative potential of bicycle education when I learned about CyclingSavvy, started in Florida in June 2010. Had CyclingSavvy been available when I rediscovered bicycling in the 1990s, I would have saved myself years of trial and error!

    • John, it’s never too late to learn how easy it can be to share our public roadways as equal citizens on bicycles. I’ve added your email address to our St. Louis CyclingSavvy email list. I hope to meet you at a class soon!
