Junior Road Cycling Academy Programme 2024

Dear Parents/ Guardians

Castlebar Cycling Club are delighted to announce that we will be commencing a Youth Road Cycling Development Programme in February aimed at children born in 2010/2011/2012.  The initial aim of this programme will be:

– to give an introduction to road cycling with a focus on group riding and road bike handling in a safe environment.
– when the riders are deemed ready there will be a progression to road cycling under the direct supervision of our experienced riders and coaches.  

As a club we have a proud tradition in running such programmes over the past 10-15 years with great success.  Many of our young riders have gone on to elite level with both our own club as well as Connacht Cycling.  

We would recommend the use of a road bike or a hybrid for any participant wishing to participate; certain mountain bikes may also be suitable and we can review the suitability of same in advance. The club also has a number of new and refurbished youth road bikes which are fully serviced and road worthy, and will be made available to those who wish to participate in the programme and require their use. 

Please complete the following form to indicate your interest and a member of our club will be in contact in due course: forms.gle/HDQaDs7qmKSoNdYN8
