Everyone tells me that I’m going to get killed, or that I don’t ride the way I instruct. I hope this video dispels their belief.
About Thomas Armstrong
I heard a bicyclist should act like a motorist, but nobody showed me how. Eventually, I took the League of American Bicyclist (LAB) Smart Cycling course. Once I decided these techniques worked, I decided to become a League Cycling Instructor.
After more riding time, I determined some techniques worked well for me; like taking the lane for left turns and understanding site lines. Others like riding in the right tire lane resulted in mixed outcomes.
Recently, I took the CyclingSavvy course. A few of the techniques they teach are turning right on green, managing your space, control and release, and what size of a lane is to small to share. Once I added these and other CyclingSavvy techniques to my riding, I became a lot more confident and fearless with riding on our roads.
I am now a CyclingSavvy instructor to help spread these gotta have riding techniques to your bicycling toolbox.
