CyclingSavvy Instructor(My first utility bicycle trip, four miles, was when Dwight Eisenhower was president.)
Bicycling journalist, bicycle tourist, failed bicycle racer, huge fan of ways to improve cyclist safety.
I began my journey in the cycling industry back when Spiro Agnew was vice president. And I thought I knew it all. I’d written three books and hundreds of articles, edited magazines, and so on.
And then . . . I met Cycling Savvy. In 2009 Keri Caffrey invited me to attend the second-ever Cycling Savvy course. (It didn’t hurt that it was in Key West in December!) What Keri and co-author Mighk Wilson did was astonishing: It codified the core principles of how to make traffic law work for you, far better than any previous book or education program. It was fun to take the course and fun to teach the course.
I’ve taught and observed courses in cities all over the country, and I am a huge fan.
