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.
