Cycling provides a positive focus for youth, develops self-esteem, provides kids with a strong sense of community, and introduces them to a healthy active lifestyle. Cycling is a great sport where participants progress at their own pace, everyone participates all the time, and riders of all abilities are invited to participate! This program teaches off-road riding skills, safety, and etiquette through group rides, drills, games, and fun activities led by certified cycling coaches. The club season begins in the beginning of June at this time and ends 9/29/2020. In addition to fun, social group rides and instruction, interested participants will also have the option to participate in the MISCA 6-event youth-only mountain bike race series (optional races on Sundays 8/30/2020 – 10/18/2020). Planned ride locations will be communicated in advance (subject to change based on weather/trail conditions). Club is operating under MiSCA polices and procedures.
Riders must also register through the MiSCA Organization at https://www.miscabike.org/students-racers/. There is a $50 fee with MiSCA. Choose RARA Rochester Area Youth Cycling Club for your team.
Requirements: Participants must provide bike and helmet and should have confident basic bicycle riding skills. Bikes must be suitable for riding on rugged terrain and be equipped with hand brakes and appropriate tires to provide sufficient traction and safety on loose terrain. Multi-speed bikes with selectable gears are highly recommended.
Rides are Tuesdays at 6:00pm. Rides will typically run 6:30pm-8pm, however, early and late season rides may be scheduled to accommodate reduced daylight hours.
Rides will be at the following parks and alternate throughout the season: Stoney Creek Metro Park, Addison Oaks, Bloomer Park, River Bends (by trail head), Bald Mountain North
