Inspire Juniors Rec MTB (Mountain Bike)

Inspire Juniors Rec MTB brings kids aged six and older together to mountain bike with peers, have fun, and develop an appreciation for the sport and the outdoors while building skills, confidence, and fitness. Team members will improve their mountain biking skills while being a part of a team that instills positive values, like camaraderie and respect. Racing is optional but supported if juniors want to give it a try.

New for 2023, we will have Inspire Juniors Rec MTB programs home based out of THREE different locations: Ken-Caryl, Highlands Ranch, and Castle Rock.  50-75% of the practices will take place in the home base location, with the remaining practices in other locations in the southwest metro area.

At the beginning of each session, kids are divided into groups of 7 based on age and guided by a coach for each practice.  Parents are encouraged to sign up to volunteer to ride along so that each group has two adults.  Each junior will receive a free jersey if registration is submitted by January 15 for spring session and March 1 for summer session.

Interested in coaching?  We still need a few coaches for our programs!  You can choose to volunteer (with the fee of one child waived) or be paid.  Learn more and apply here:  http://avoutracing.com/becomeacoach/

Inspire Juniors Rec Ken-Caryl

We are excited to run two Ken-Caryl based programs this year so that more kids can ride bikes with us!

In the Spring, each program will meet once a week in Ken-Caryl and once a week on other trails in the area (Waterton, Bear Creek Lake Park, Green Mountain, Ruby Hill, Highlands Ranch, etc.).  Spring 1 and Spring 2 will be the same program with opposite locations each week.

In the Summer, we will offer two different time slot options.  Practices will be in Ken-Caryl about 2/3 of the time and on other local trails about 1/3 of the time (Waterton, Bear Creek Lake Park, Green Mountain, Ruby Hill, Highlands Ranch, etc.).

If you want to ride with your friends, be sure they sign up for the same session!

Inspire Juniors Rec CX (Cyclocross)

Do You Want to Try a Fun and Crazy Fall Cycling Sport?

Inspire Juniors Rec Cyclocross brings kids aged eight and older together for an introduction to cyclocross, having fun while building bike handling skills, confidence, and fitness. Team members learn the skills unique to cyclocross while being a part of a team that instills positive values, like camaraderie and respect. Racing is optional but encouraged – that’s what makes this sport so fun!  Juniors can use a mountain bike if they don’t have a cyclocross bike.  Experienced racers are encouraged to consider the Academy CX program instead as a more challenging and race focused experienced.

More information coming soon!

Registration for Inspire Juniors Rec CX will open in spring of 2023.
