I live and work in St. Louis. It's an honor to be able to teach this incredible new thing called CyclingSavvy. I hope I get to ride with you! Nothing would make me happier than hearing you confirm: "Yep, it's true. As a savvy cyclist, I can bike anywhere." :-)

John Schubert


Back when Dwight Eisenhower was president, I took off the training wheels and rode two miles from my home to downtown -- and back.  Ever since then, being independent on a bike has resonated with me.  I have been bicycle touring since 1971 (including a solo transcontinental and some delightful tandem tours with my wife and son), spent a few wretched seasons racing, and played in the woods hundreds of times on the then-revolutionary mountain bike.  These days, I ride for fitness and utility in eastern Pennsylvania, and try to have an overnight tour or two every summer.  In 2014, I rode 100 km to my 40th college reunion.    Despite my best efforts to have a real career as a journalist, bicycling became my work too.  I left the newspaper business for Bicycling Magazine, left Bicycling for Bicycle Guide, and left Bicycle Guide for Adventure Cyclist.  I've written two books about cycling.  I am certified as an Effective Cycling Instructor; I have completed Adventure Cycling's tour leader training (and staffed an Adventure Cycling tour), and I have worked as a forensic expert in bicycle accident reconstruction for decades.    When I first saw Cycling Savvy, in 2009, I was stunned.  This is a paradigm-busting program that teaches in a few hours things that we used to think took years.  I'm thrilled to be part of Cycling Savvy.

I have found CyclingSavvy as a way to take the Rules of the Road a step beyond - for a cyclist to initiate communication and cooperation with motorists is what we need on the roads to make driving a human kind of situation, for a change. In Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, I am part of CAT-Coalition for Appropriate Transportation (www.LVCAT.org), providing advocacy & education for bicycling, walking and public transit... We teach adults & kids, racers & rail trail riders, police officers & public planners. Paralleling a 12 year engineering career, I have been teaching bicycle education for over 12 years and became a CyclingSavvy Instructor in February 2018.
