The owner, Peter Flucke, is a former law enforcement officer, nationally certified League Cycling Instructor, Police Cyclist and pedestrian safety instructor.

As a component of the law enforcement training program Bike Cleveland is hosting a free two-day Enforcement for Pedestrian & Bicycle Safety course taught by Peter Flucke of WE BIKE. In the training, officers will learn the what, where, when, how, who & why of walking and bicycling; components of the Highway Safety Triangle; pedestrian and bicycle environment audits; how pedestrian & bicycle crashes happen; pedestrian & bicycle laws; crash investigating & reporting; potential law enforcement partners; and more. This course is appropriate for all law enforcement officers. Training details are below:
