We provide bicycles, coaching and a training area free from traffic.

The Phoenix Youth Group will focus on individual fitness and skills. The Group will learn the principles of riding a road racing bike including cornering, braking and gear selection.
Training exercises will include skills development, short distance sprints as well as longer distance rides. Races will be efforts over varying distances
and riders will be able to chart their improvements throughout the season.
