Fairfield County Junior Cycling Team holds informational meeting

Fairfield County Junior Cycling Team will hold an informational meeting to learn about the Fairfield Junior Cycling Team on Thursday, June 18, at 6 p.m., at Pacific Cycling & Triathlon, 575 Pacific Street, Stamford.

Fairfield Country Junior Cycling is a non-profit club supported by the Connecticut Cyling Advantage Program (CCAP). It is a club made for youth — to ride with peers — to learn cycling skills — for competition and recreation. Our three coaches are USAC Certified and are either parents of youth or adults who have a love of cycling to share. Fairfield Junior Cycling is about developing cycling skills and providing opportunities for youth to experience new aspects of cycling. Our team is open to young men and women. There will be two age groups, 9-12 and 13-18-years-old.

FCJC is a club for all levels of riding ability. There is also the infrastructure to help riders develop into higher levels of racing with increasing challenges if they choose to dedicate themselves to cycling. The development pipeline moves younger club riders of beginning skill levels up to the elite level of junior racers. We help move team members through the different stages of development as junior cyclists by bringing them resources which includes equipment, coaching and technical advice.

If a young rider is coming into the program with little or no cycling experience the expectations are simple: learn the basics of the sport, how to be safe on the road, and most importantly, have fun. As the riders progress through the program, or come into the program at a more advanced level, the expectations shift to developing the competitive aspect of the sport.

Our mission is to teach life lessons through the sport of cycling, have a lot of fun, and help develop some good cyclists along the way

Practices will be held on Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. Location will be in Stamford, CT and announced at a later date. The race schedule will be determined once the teams are formed.

Cost is $399 for a three month season and includes a full custom cycling kit.

Discounted bikes and team deals on products and accessories will be available to all participants.
