The League certifies hundreds of League Cycling Instructors every year and there are thousands of LCIs around the country leading bike education efforts in their communities. In our LCI spotlight series, we are sharing the stories of League Cycling Instructors doing what they do every day: educating, mentoring, empowering. You don’t have to be an extraordinary athlete or overachieving student to be a stellar LCI, all you need is the conviction that life is better for everyone when more people ride bikes.

Toria interned at the League with a focus on supoprting our Bicycle Friendly American program over several years while completing her studies at Georgetown and before heading to Iowa as a staffer on the Pete for America campaign during the Democratic Party primaries in early 2019.
