League Names new League Cycling Instructors

Kauai Path Inc. is pleased to announce that  Angelo Catiggay, Lem Soria, Kenney Ishii, Mark Olson, Rene Relacion and Thomas Noyes have earned the prestigious certification of League Cycling Instructor ( LCI) from the League of American Bicyclists, a 125-year-old national bicycling organization. Randy Blake was certified previously at a training on the Big Island.


“This group has completed in-depth training on teaching skills for cycling in traffic, on trails and with groups of riders,” said Bill Nesper, education program manager for the League of American Bicyclists. “They all will now be able to train all levels of riders how to confidently and effectively cycle for fun, fitness and transportation.”


LCI Candidate Robert Mon practices the quick stop maneuver as Thomas Noyes and Carol Fontanive spot him.

LCI seminars educate participants on how to teach bicycle safety and skills to all levels of riders rather than focusing on technical bicycling knowledge. The League Cycling Instructor designation is only given after a person qualifies for, and excels in, an intense three-day education seminar.


“League Cycling Instructors are the backbone of the League’s education program,” said Andy Clarke, executive director of the League of American Bicyclists. “These new instructors have demonstrated a proficiency in teaching, a love of cycling, and a willingness to share these skills with other riders.” Experienced cyclists interested in teaching others how to ride safely are eligible to apply for the seminar. A prerequisite is completing the League’s Road I course.


In addition, these individuals will instructing Kauai Path Inc.’s new bike education program which aims to improve the bicycling skills of local island residents and visitors.


Funding for the scholarships for the training was provided by Communities Putting Prevention to Work and administered by Kauai Path Inc.
