The primary focus of the Youth Winter Flex Program is to provide an opportunity for young cyclists to participate in activities that will help with their overall athletic development, increase their athletic literacy and teach them the basics of training. The Winter Flex Program will focus on the enjoyment factor of training while inspiring, educating and physically challenging young cyclists. This program is open to riders age 11-17.
The goal of the program is to foster a lifelong love for the cycling & the outdoors while build fitness & strength for the 2020 cycling season.
Riders are encouraged (although not required) to build toward racing in the spring and summer because of the following benefits:
- Self discovery through pushing personal boundaries in a safe manner
- Life lessons learned in the process
- It is enjoyable to go fast
