CyclingSavvy is a three-part course:
Truth & Techniques (classroom), Train Your Bike (on-bike skills), and the Tour of Your City.
Truth & Techniques and Train Your Bike sessions are prerequisites for taking a City Tour session. As such, the City Tour sessions will not be visible below until you select both of the prerequisite sessions.

I own and founded Bicycle Headquarters, Inc. (Midland, MI) in 1986. I have done extensive long distance (solo and group) bicycle tours. I have been licensed to operate many forms of transportation; auto, motorcycle, airplane (private SEL), and helicopter (commercial rotorcraft). I am a retired law enforcement officer (1975-1998) for the Michigan DNR. As a Conservation Officer, I operated and enforced the laws for boats, ORV's, and snowmobiles. I took the LAB cycling course in 2004 and became a LCI in 2005. I found their course lacking many things that are very important. I took the Cycling Savvy course in 2011 and became an instructor in 2012. The Cycling Savvy course does a very good job of covering those important areas. “The problem ain't what people know. It's what people know that ain't so that's the problem.” ― Will Rogers
I've ridden my bike to get around for more than half a century, but it is only in the last few years that I've learned how to do it with the greatest degree of safety and the least amount of stress. For me, CyclingSavvy is the drivers education that has been missing for American cyclists. We've sent generations of cyclists onto the streets with nothing more than the admonition to "be careful and watch out for cars." It's gratifying to be able to share what I've learned and enable others to enjoy riding their bikes with a confidence they never imagined possible.
I've been a bicycle commuter for many years, and learned a lot of lessons by trial and error, and still had a lot to learn. Now that I'm a savvy cyclist, I want to help others to learn in a few hours what took me years.
