I have been cycling since my childhood. I see bikes as a great tool for creating equity and sustainability in our lives. I have worked with nearly all aspects of cycling: mechanic, shop manager, race organizer, teacher, community organizer, racer, bicycle programmer. I currently oversee bicycle programming at the University of Florida through the UF Office of Sustainability. I am a firm believer in the magic of Cycling Savvy and look forward to working with future savvy cyclists!
I have been a transportation cyclist for many years, and have been active in cycling education since 2000. A few years ago, I heard of a new program called Cycling Savvy, and how it was a more student-friendly way of teaching. I took the class, and was greatly impressed by the teaching methods when compared to what I had been seeing (and how I had been teaching!). I am excited to bring the Cycling Savvy program to Louisville!
I started using my bicycle as a primary form of transportation in 2005. I avoid icy roads, high winds, and thunderstorms, but otherwise ride year round. Cycling for transportation is an easy, fun, and rewarding way to get exercise, save money, and live greener.
I’ve used a bicycle for transportation in St. Louis for thirteen years and counting, six of those with my son along for the ride. As a public health professional, I'm a big proponent of active living, and I'm excited to help others discover the many rewards of being a confident, empowered cyclist.
I live in the heart of the City of St. Louis, in a National Register historic district that's located almost exactly four miles due west of the Gateway Arch. I didn't merely travel to Orlando for initial CS training and instructor certification. I was "dragged there" by a fellow instructor who insisted that CS was "the best thing for urban bicycling" since my Surly Cross Check and that we just had to bring the curriculum to the Mound City. She was right: Even though I've been an urban cyclist on-and-off for the past 40 years and a dedicated one for most of the past two decades, I was "blown away" by the course and its creators. From the remarkable graphics to the extraordinarily useful communications skills (for example, "control and release"), CS is exactly what urban cyclists of any and all skill levels need for safe, joyous urban travel on two wheels. Now we need to spread the good news to a bicycling culture increasingly addicted to what frequently are self-defeating behavior patterns and unsafe infrastructure "improvements."
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." :-)
I learned to ride a bike at age 11, fell off and didn't really ride again until I was 44. Cycling Savvy changed my life. The skills I learned on my CS weekend enabled me to start commuting regularly by bicycle. Nashville is filled with kind and respectful drivers and cycling is sure to grow in our community. I ride each day in joyful hope, waiting for more cyclists to take to the road. Come and see what Cycling Savvy can do for you. Come and see!
Learning to ride a bicycle predates my first memories. From childhood through my college years a bicycle has been a key to independence. For over a decade I've used my bicycle for transportation. What I learned in Cycling Savvy made my commutes much more relaxing and enjoyable. I hope to help you find the joy of going by bicycle.
