Laura Davidson Brienza
Certified Cycling Instructor (LCI)
PA Certified Counselor (MS Education)
My love for teaching bike education began in graduate school when I took a job coordinating a summer youth cycling program and quickly realized I had a passion for helping people access the joy and freedom of riding a bike. When I was hired as a School Counselor in a local public charter district, I teamed up with the physical education teachers to found an outdoor cycling program. The program, now spanning the entire K-12 district, provides an opportunity during the school day for students to learn how to ride in the city, with many learning to ride for the first time.
In 2022, I became a certified cycling instructor through the League of American Bicyclists. With this League Cycling Instructor (LCI) Certification, I began teaching Smart Cycling private and group classes, as well as leading group rides, workshops, and private lessons on safe cycling.
