RAYC Virtual 2021 Season Kick-Off Meeting: Date Coming Soon!
First Practice: Tuesday, May 11, 2021
Cycling provides a positive focus for youth, develops self-esteem, provides kids with a strong sense of community, and introduces them to a healthy active lifestyle. Cycling is a great sport where participants progress at their own pace, everyone participates all the time, and riders of all abilities are invited to participate! This program teaches off-road riding skills, safety, and etiquette through group rides, drills, games, and fun activities led by certified cycling coaches. The club season begins 5/11/2021 and ends 10/19/2021. In addition to fun, social group rides and instruction, interested participants will also have the option to participate in the MISCA 6-event youth-only mountain bike race series (optional races on Sundays 8/29/2021 – 10/17/2021). Click Here for MiSCA Race Series information. Planned ride locations will be communicated in advance (subject to change based on weather/trail conditions). Club is operating under MiSCA polices and procedures.
Cost: $100 for entire season (includes club t-shirt and team jersey)
Riders must also register through the MiSCA Organization. Click Here to register with MiSCA. There is a $50 fee with MiSCA. Choose RARA Rochester Area Youth Cycling Club for your team.
Requirements: Participants must provide bike and helmet and should have confident basic bicycle riding skills. Bikes must be suitable for riding on rugged terrain and be equipped with hand brakes and appropriate tires to provide sufficient traction and safety on loose terrain. Multi-speed bikes with selectable gears are highly recommended.
Rides are Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:00pm. Rides will typically run 6:30pm-7:30pm, however, ending times may vary and early and late season rides may be scheduled to accommodate reduced daylight hours.
Rides will be primarily at the following parks and alternate throughout the season: Stoney Creek Metro Park, Addison Oaks, Bloomer Park, River Bends (by trail head), Bald Mountain North (other parks may be added)
We are looking for sponsors for this season. Sponsorships are $200 and will have their logo on both our club t-shirt and team jersey. Send your logo to firstname.lastname@example.org.
