Who We Are
Walk Bike University (WBU) Instructors are cycling and pedestrian leaders in our community who volunteer their time to help further the mission of Walk Bike University: growing the Nashville bicycle and pedestrian community by providing education, raising awareness, and cultivating bicycle and pedestrian leaders. Instructors teach a variety of classes offered to the public through Walk Bike University.
How To Become An Instructor
Walk/Bike Nashville is looking for Nashvillians with strong communication skills and a passion for cycling and walking. Walk/Bike Nashville is committed to supporting our instructors and offers professional development, scholarships to state and national conventions, and other perks. In return, all Instructors must commit to volunteering to teach at least 3 courses each year.
We have rolling applications for Instructors in the fall of each year, if you are interested in applying please contact us.
If selected by the Walk Bike University Committee, you'll be placed into one of 3 groups: Cycling Instructors, Pedestrian Advocacy Instructors, and Bike Maintenance Instructors. Cycling Instructors will then participate in an online bike-education course, a road test, and then a League of American Bicyclists Instructor Certification course.
