Riding a bike is not as easy as…riding a bike. Public safety cyclists must learn how to ride both technically and tactically. This intense course will equip you with the skills to teach public safety cyclists how to use their bikes safely and effectively. Through in-class presentations, on-bike drills, mock teaching sessions, and peer and self-critiques, you will learn to identify and correct improper technique; assist students in overcoming difficulties; and incorporate various methods of instruction into the IPMBA courses. This course is often described by graduates as one of the most challenging and rewarding classes of their careers.
