The Charlotte Youth Cycling League (CYCL) was organized to give kids the opportunity to have a great mountain bike race experience that is scaled to fit the age and ability level of a child in a fun, safe, low cost setting. Through mountain bike racing we promote good sportsmanship, skill building and a bias towards healthy activity.
Our inaugural 2012 season will be comprised of four mountain bike races. All races will be held at Fish Farm Park in Davidson, NC. The 2012 race dates are:
- March 18th
- April 1st
- April 22nd
- May 6th
Categories will be by age groups (final breakdown to be determined) with divisions for boys and girls in each age group. Boys and girls of the same age group will race together and similar age groups will share the course. Meaning we won’t be having high school and elementary school kids on the course at the same time.
The course will be the green mountain bike trail for younger rider and the green plus a blue section for older riders at Fisher Farm Park. Number of laps will increase by age group. The youngest age group will race a smaller separate course. Any child who enjoys riding is probably doing all the training they need to be doing to come out, compete and have fun.
Details are being worked out and as they are developed they will be posted here. We look forward to seeing all of you on race day!
