Through the Victoria CRD Hub, the cycling community is connected from the grassroots all the way up to the podium. As a hub, the primary objective is to develop and educate athletes and coaches, coordinate grassroots programs, foster community involvement, build gracious champions, and develop accessible events to promote the growth of the sport.
