Summer Mountain Bike Skills Program

June 3-24 Saturdays only plus June 26 – July 1 every day,

The Ciclismo Youth Foundation summer program is a community-based junior cycling program for youth ages in Middle School and High School to develop bike maintenance, riding and racing skills. The program will allow each rider the chance to grow as an athlete and as an individual in a positive atmosphere. The CYF Summer Program will begin with introductions and bike maintenance, and then focus on bike handling techniques and skills. The program is capped at 50 riders. 

We are changing up the format of the Summer program this year!  This summer we will start out with once a week practices on all four Saturdays during June, then wrap up the month with a week-long daily ride series, ending with a celebration ride day on Saturday, July 1.  This format will allow riders to  participate in other activites during the week, and to participate in one of the Curt Gowdy summer camps offered during June if they want a big riding month!

If you’re interested in one of the Curt Gowdy camps check out their offerings below.
