Cascadia Club

For recreational riders in grades 6-12 who enjoy a mix of skills, group rides & adventures

Our Cascadia Club Riders are a diverse & growing group! This program of recreational-paced, no-drop, skills-building group rides support a wide range of riders and abilities. The supportive coaches create groups that are often stable for many weeks to promote development and have fun while making safety a priority.

Riders must show a high level of maturity and a willingness to pedal on a variety of trails over all kinds of terrain. Work & effort are required.

Coaching Support

Weekly club rides are designed to progress lessons each week for a comprehensive experience over the course of the session. Coaches know that all riders learn differently and recognize that riders have individual goals so we split into groups as needed and adjust the lessons to fit the abilities of the riders.

Our Club Coaches are experienced skills instructors & leader who keep practices fun with a mix of riding and intentional skills development.

  • Progressive skills: our systematic training and skills progression is proven to keep juniors progressing throughout each season and for their entire time as a junior racer.
  • Regular attendance is important because coaches shape each practice to build up each rider’s skill, fitness, and knowledge.
  • Trips: we will have weekend rides, bonus rides, day trips and overnight travel where riders can work as a team and spend more time with their coaches.

Weekend Rides & Opportunities

Cascadia Club riders can choose to join almost all of the events listed on the XC or Enduro Team pages. Check those out for the entire list, but specifically these are a few we will encourage for this season.
