Bicycle advocates in Irving held a League Cycling Instructor (LCI) training session in early October. Francesca Funk of the Irving Bike Lane Task Force says, “Irving has gone from one LCI to six LCIs, and we’re ready to roll with bike safety and especially Safe Routes to School.” This training session had a total of 10 participants: five from Irving, two from Richardson, one from Plano, one from Carollton, and one from Austin, taught by Preston Tyree and Gail Spann.
