NY Junior Cycling
We remove the accessibility barriers that impede participation and success for junior cyclists by providing Olympic and World class coaching, support and life lessons to all - NO BARRIERS.
We are a non-profit organization.
NO BARRIERS. That is our motto and our mission: 100% of the program participants are Metro NY junior athletes. We're building the foundation for the next generation of teenage cyclists and outstanding community citizens.
Participants are diverse - including the teenagers who are overlooked and left out of the cycling community. We identify, enable and develop any junior athlete who wants a chance to participate and succeed - local level enthusiasts through the national level elite.
The FREE TRACK PROGRAM for teenagers at the Kissena Velodrome is our NO BARRIERS starting point open to the entire community. The race program supports growth to the highest level on and off the bike.
The NY JUNIOR CYCLING coaching staff has National, International and Olympic credentials. The teenage FREE TRACK PROGRAM is supported by the same staff.
Our program is built on a commitment to fair play, hard work, honor, sportsmanship, and dedication to teammates. Our teenage athletes already have achieved success on the bike and in their communities.
We are proud to add our NICA Mountain Bike Program. Mountain biking is amazing fun and another way to introduce juniors to cycling options off road!
