CyclingSavvy is a new traffic cycling curriculum from Florida Bicycle Association (FBA). It was developed by former League Cycling Instructors Keri Caffrey and Mighk Wilson. The class inevitably teaches some of the same essential traffic cycling principles and skills as other cycling courses but it was not based on any existing curriculum. It is built upon an understanding of the needs of adult learners and the challenges of changing behavior that is strongly rooted in our traffic culture. Much of the content in the CyclingSavvy curriculum is completely original. Traditional content is framed and delivered in unique ways to maximize the learning process.
It is a modular course, consisting of three 3-hour classes:
- The Truth and Techniques of Traffic Cycling – a 3-hour classroom session on traffic laws, crash prevention, bicycle driving principles, and unique traffic management strategies developed for this course
- Train Your Bike – a 3-hour on-bike skill-building session held in a parking lot
- Tour of the City – a 3½ hour experiential, on-road learning experience
