LCI Seminar at Chapel Hill TN

Cycling Education and LCI Scholarships offered

Donna Dixon <>Mon, Jan 4, 2021 at 11:32 AM

Dear Colleague, 

Registration is open for the LCI Seminar at Chapel Hill TN hosted by the Jeff Roth Cycling Foundation April 23-25, 2021. Scholarships for TN Residents available. 

 League Cycling Instructors (LCIs) are certified to teach the Smart Cycling curriculum developed by the League of American Bicyclists. The goals of the Smart Cycling curriculum are to:   (1) help people feel more secure riding a bike, (2) to create a mindset that bikes should be treated as a vehicle, and (3) to ensure bicyclists know how to ride safely and legally.  I feel that participation in the LCI program will benefit you personally, and be a asset for your role as a leader. 

Will you find a candidate who will commit?  If you are not familiar with the League of American Bicyclists safety and instruction program you can follow these links to see why we believe it is important that we have trained and certified instructors available in TN communities. 


The JEFF ROTH CYCLING FOUNDATION promotes cycling, through advocacy and education, as a safe and healthy form of recreation and transportation. We are increasing awareness of the Jeff Roth/Brian Brown Protection Act of 2007 and promoting a harmonious relationship between motorists and cyclists, as the number of commuting cyclists are ever increasing in our state of Tennessee and our country. See site for Scholarship information.

Christmas Lights from Doc

Some of you might have stopped by to see the display some of you might not even know about it.  This is my second year putting up a Christmas Light show to music.  This is what I'm working on when I'm not riding a bike.  If you have the chance stop by 1079 McLaughlin Ct, Gallatin to check out the show.  If you want to follow the show like me on BooneShineFamilyLights.

The Farm Out and Back Ride and Tailgate Party, Saturday, 10/3/20

 This Saturday, as Jack and Back has been canceled, it is being replaced by The Farm Out and Back Ride.  You guessed it, we will ride from The Farm at 8:00.  Dave Miley will  be planning the route.

After the ride, we will have a tailgate party.  Bill Barton is bringing up one of his trailers so that we can watch some college football.  Fire pits will be blazing.  

Party time will be 12:00. So, bring your favorite adult beverage, cigars and a side dish (Post what side you will  bring) and hangout for a fun afternoon. 

Watch for routes later this week. 

Your race directors and party planners, 

Mike, Sherry, Dave, Janice, Lindsay, Bill
