Become a Certified Bike Instructor

Bike East Bay’s award-winning education program is growing in 2022, with lots of fun opportunities for certified bike instructors to earn money teaching both in-person and webinar classes professionally. A League of American Bicyclists instructor certification (LCI) is required, so we are providing a 3-day certification seminar at our Oakland office in early March, with registration fees paid for a limited number of candidates thanks to generous support from the Alameda County Transportation Commission.

The purpose of this training is to increase the number of women, non-binary individuals, and people of color teaching bicycle education programs in the Bay Area, with a secondary focus on expanding the number of instructors who can teach in-language Spanish, Cantonese, or Tagalog classes, and those with personal or professional connections to the greater Bay area. No technical or professional experience is required, all you need is a love for bicycling and a desire to share this with others.

Read about one of our previous instructor certification seminars here, and fill out the form below to let us know you are interested, or share it with a friend who you think would be a great fit for this opportunity! Form responses are due by January 31, 2022.
