Air Products Youth Cycling Programs

Check back soon for registration information!

What’s new for 2023?

Our summer Youth Cycling Programs are expanding in 2023. Rather than solely offering weekday classes in July and August, we are now offering additional weekend classes June through September to give kids ages 8-16 more opportunities to ride our track.

Riders will be split into groups of riders with similar abilities to support safer riding and give them opportunity to have fun with kids with similar skills. Classes will start with basic track etiquette and safety progress towards bike handling and racing skills. As we learned from last Fall’s Youth Grass Track sessions, every once in a while we can venture outside of the velodrome to have some unique fun while further improving their handling skills.

What does all of this cost?

With the generous grant from Air Products and support from our other sponsors, we have created a coached program that costs $5/hr or less, yet offers abundant opportunities to ride and even race at our velodrome. All Youth Cycling sessions include a complementary VPCC Rider Membership which creates additional opportunities to ride on the track and opens up eligibility to participate in our athlete training programs as appropriate.
