Event Information

The inaugural Victoria Youth Cycling Experience (VYCE), August 14 – 19, 2022, is a collaborative project between Cycling BC, Cycling Canada, and Victoria’s cycling community.

The event will consist of multi-discipline (road, track, and mountain bike) development camps, social events, and racing for Canada’s young cyclists, ages 10-19, and the coaches who support them. The age range can be flexible as participants will be grouped by ability.

The goal of the Victoria Youth Cycling Experience is to bring together young riders who wish to improve their riding skills, provide them with development & racing opportunities, and connect Canada’s youth cycling communities to one another.

We invite all young cyclists to join us for this unique opportunity to learn, race and have some fun on the west coast.
