The Rocky Trail Academy is all about fostering the grass-roots development of the cycling sport. These events are part of our junior rider development program, which will be rolled out in the coming months.
The Rocky Trail academy schools events not only engage youth in healthy social and active recreation but brings a heightened appreciation of nature, the environment, self-reliance , self-learning and independence, all as part of riding a bike in the outdoors. By extension, this program also engages and educates teachers and parents.
Generally, all Rocky Trail events offer junior categories and we love it when our racers bring their families along – to race with them or for kids and partners to hang out with us at the event centre! The atmosphere is friendly and especially at the cross-country events we do free kids time-trial races for them, where ‘everyone is a winner’ !
