And Tricia's testimonial:
I took the League of American Bicyclists Effective Cycling class from Gordon Renkes many years ago in anticipation of leading rides for beginner riders. Although I thought I knew everything about cycling, I learned many new techniques for riding in traffic, bike handling skills and specifics of Ohio traffic law which I was not previously aware of. The benefits of the LAB Road 1 course are well worth the investment of 3 Saturday mornings. Gordon is an excellent cycling educator with extensive knowledge and experience in the practical and technical aspects of cycling.
