Youth Mountain Bike
The Woodstock Cycling Club ( WCC ), is excited to offer the seventh year of our Youth Mountain Bike Development Program.
The age levels should be between 10 and 17 years however we will consider other ages on an individual basis.
Social rides start usually the last week of April and run on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:00pm to 7:30pm until the end of June, with the possibility of an extension; weather and trail conditions permitting.
Our program is designed to foster confidence and participation; a recreational opportunity for all kids regardless of competitive ability. Cycling is a sport that offers individual challenges and rewards as well as a fun social dynamic. There are no tryouts and no cuts in this program. We offer a supportive environment based on personal accomplishment at individual skill levels. The only requirement is a desire to have fun while developing fundamental cycling skills. Parental involvement is encouraged through volunteer efforts or direct participation.
Members of the Youth Programs must take out a youth or family membership in the Woodstock Cycling Club. Well maintained trail suitable bicycles and approved helmets are required. ( the club will try to assist anyone on individual needs.)
The WCC has been a part of the community since 1896! Over the last 20 years we have created an extensive trail network called The Pines with well marked trails & varying levels of difficulty.
First ride and day of registration will be from 6pm to 7:30 on the Monday usually the last week of April at the trail complex, “The Pines”. Directions can be found on our website.
