Juniors Program Info


 

We have a great group of junior riders from 6 through to 19 who enjoy practicing new skills, training, racing and have fun in a safe supportive environment. Training is run Tue and Thu afternoons at Albert Bishop Park Criterium Track, Hedley Ave Nundah.



Racing is conducted both on closed road courses at the Albert Bishop Park criterium circuit at Nundah, at Lakeside Park at Kurwongbah, and for track cycling at Velodromes at Chandler and Caboolture.

Riding on the velodrome is great fun and is a big part of our junior development program.

For more details please contact our Junior Coach Kris Kersley and also have a look at the weekly update for events, news, results and photos.
