Phoenix Velo Youth Racing

Phoenix Velo’s Youth Group is a road-training and racing group focussed on introducing kids to road racing. Since the beginning of the season, the youth group has seen great growth, and would like to encourage even more youth to join on Wednesday nights in Mission.

Originally open to youth aged 10-18, the club has now softened the age guidelines, with younger riders able to join the group if they are able to handle a 24” wheel road bike.

The group meets once weekly, on Wednesdays, at the Mission Raceway at 5:15 pm for sign-on and bike check. Training sessions last one hour, from 5:30 to 6:30 pm

Three groups are run, based on ability/speed. Club bikes are available for riders who do not have their own road bike, and parents are also encouraged to come along and ride with the Novice adult group. Four to six coaches work with the group, and some of the club’s top racers also lend a hand with the advanced ability group.

If you have any questions about the Phoenix Velo Youth Group, and would like to get in touch with the club, please contact Jamie Johnson at Keep informed of any weekly changes to the schedule through Phoenix Velo’s facebook group, Phoenix Velo Training Group.
