New Riders Ages 9-16
Schedules and Registration information will be posted when available.
The Bicycle Racing League driven by Schearer’s Sales & Service, commonly referred to as “BRL,” introduces new riders ages 9-16 with little or no previous experience to the thrill and excitement of bicycle racing through a one of a kind youth cycling league. Riders are separated into categories based on their comfort, ability, and performance, racing with riders of the same ability level.
BRL is offered during the spring and fall annually. Riders are placed into teams and race head to head in a round robin series that culminates in the BRL Team Championship. Riders can also participate in BRL Sprint Night, a night containing sprint-oriented racing.
A group of riders will be invited to race with the elite riders during our opening night of Friday Night under the Lights series, BRL All Stars.
Our team of certified coaches manage all classes. Head coaches are CPR and SafeSport Certified, First-Aid trained and have extensive experience in bicycle racing and training.

BRL Summer Skills
This program helps young riders learn the fundamentals of the velodrome and helps familiarize them with riding on the track in a racing context. Programming involves developing and improving the skills that relate to racing and race situations. Riders will get to experience mock racing and race scenarios to put their new skills to the test in a controlled environment.
This summertime class is designed for young riders to develop and hone the bicycle racing skills they will use during the BRL racing season. It’s perfect for graduates of the PeeWee Pedalers and current/new BRL racers!
Coached by licensed coaches, riders will be split into “A” and “B” groups, with the “A” group focusing on more advanced skills. Kids can move between groups as they feel comfortable.
Program includes the use of track bikes. Helmets are required.
