CJC Intro Clinics

Mountain bike skills clinics held on Thursdays, to help new riders get started with Cascadia Junior Cycling or provide supplemental instruction to current riders. The clinics accomplish several things:

  • New riders are encouraged to attend a clinic before they begin a CJC program or summer camp to meet the coaches, get a bike check & skills assessment. Super helpful to get all questions answered about logistics, equipment, ability, etc. before the first practice.
  • Late start — riders who miss the first week of their scheduled practice will be encouraged to attend a clinic to cover all of the first-day requirements.
  • Teams — youth or race teams may use some specific Thursdays for meetings, activities or supplemental skills.
