It’s difficult to fully understand how CyclingSavvy works before you a) experience the course and b) realize how much our perceptions, beliefs, and attitudes affect our behavior and our interactions with others on the roads.
The transportation environment includes not just built infrastructure, but also public perceptions of cyclists, pedestrians and the role these groups play in our communities. Bruce Lierman’s strongest interests are in the maintenance of cyclist and pedestrian rights of access to our public thoroughfares, and improved safety and community relations through education about the meaning of shared use – and shared responsibility – in the roadways.
In addition to being a CyclingSavvy Instructor, Bruce is a Motorcycle Safety Foundation Ridercoach, and served in the USAF as a flight instructor. He has taught as an adjunct instructor at the Community College of Vermont Bennington campus.
