Summer Mountain Bike Skills Program

Saturdays June 3-24 2017 and Everyday June 26 – July 1 2017

The Ciclismo Youth Foundation summer program is a community-based junior cycling program for youth ages in Middles 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. 

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 also participate in one of the three awesome Curt Gowdy summer camps offered during June if they want a big riding month!

Note registration opens for the skills camp will be Friday February 17, the girls camp Friday February 24 and the race camp Friday March 3.
