Cascadia Junior Cycling

CJC is for youth & juniors who love to ride bikes!

Our mountain bike camps, clubs and race teams provide young riders incredible opportunities to improve their skills, build fitness, and have fun riding with their peers and mentors.

We have established an effective pipeline for riders to follow as they increase their ability and set bigger goals. Whether that goal is to ride a feature on a local trail or win a national championship race, our coaches work hard to prepare the riders and support their success.

How to select a Group

Many factors are often considered in this order:

  • Age or Grade – social & peer groups are most important
  • Maturity – emotional & physical capacity must match the peer group
  • Ability – must allow for individual / group safety & enjoyment
  • Experience – incoming riders should start with something easy and move up when coaches suggest it
  • Chosen Discipline – a rider’s bike, gear and expectations should match the group’s intention. Read our descriptions and talk to the coaches to make sure your rider is well-prepared for the chosen group.
