The core of our program is the Spring and Summer Road Program. We teach youth team members the skills to handle a bike, improve fitness and have fun doing so. Youth have the opportunity to push their limits in supported touring and racing events starting in May and continuing throughout the spring and summer.
Athletes are divided into groups based on age and ability, Ages 5 to 18 (born 2002 to 2015);
Spring session: Saturday April 18 to Sunday June 27;Cancelled due to COVID-19
- Summer: July 5 - August 30;
- Time: Sunday mornings 9-11am and Wednesday evenings 6:30-8pm;
- Location: Various assigned start locations around the Central Experimental Farm.
Please note that in order to follow public health guidelines with respect to COVID-19, we will be functioning with smaller group sizes, unique start locations, social distancing requirements, and other risk mitigation measures. For riders aged 6-8, we also require a parent to register with the Club and accompany their child to the practice sessions.
- Ages 6 to 8 (2012 to 2015): $55 (plus HST)
- Ages 9 to 18 (2002 to 2011): $85 (plus HST)
All riders (including parents who accompany riders) must be members of the Ottawa Bicycle Club, and bring their membership cards with them at all registered events. Parents who are not riding with the program do not need to be an OBC member. Through a single online registration process you will purchase an OBC Membership, purchase an Ontario Cycling Association membership (citizen permit is usually the most appropriate option unless planning to race a great deal, in which case, a UCI license is best), and select and purchase the desired youth program option.
