This program is targeting young cyclists who are looking to learn advanced skills and the basics of bike racing.

This program touches the Learn to Train aspect of the cycling Long Term Athlete Development spectrum. At this stage, we focus on all four cycling disciplines (mountain biking, road, track and BMX). One of the most important periods of motor development for children is between the ages of 12 and 14.

For years, one name stood on top the cycling in Atlantic Canada: Peter Wedge. When the Centre was developed and the first generation of young athletes was coming through, we quickly realized how respected Peter was as an athletes and a person by up and coming cyclists in this region. Peter’s career reflected many of the value desired to be reflected by such program.

Those values being the ones desired to be projected by such program. These values will also enable the program to respect the Sport Canada Learning to Train to-do list.

At the conclusion of this program, it is expected the participants will understand the basics of all disciplines as well as start to understand the importance of good practice and training. We will also assist them during New Brunswick calendar specific events.

The program will start on May 11th and run once a week until the end of the school year and then go to twice a week for the rest of the summer.
