For me, the JAM Grant represents the growth of a new generation of cycling. Maybe, we use it to supplement our rents so we can remain in the Pioneer Valley to train with the top cyclists in the country/world. Maybe, we use the grant to buy necessary bike parts. Nonetheless, the grant means that those of us that want to test ourselves and grow as athletes have the accessibility to do so.
Doesn’t get much better than being able to ride with the rad riders in the JAM Fam. Being able to follow a structure and learn through watching some of the best bike handlers in the nation is invaluable. Most notably this year, is how strong I can feel myself getting, and the improvement in my technical skills. I owe most of these improvements to the JAM Fam and to the crew of cyclists out here in the valley. The grant let me meet these groups.
The JAM Grant incorporates cyclists into a team that runs on holistic goals which is what I love most. This is a team that trains in the physical sphere, and personal, by developing athletes who are inspiring community builders. The last couple weeks, for example, the team has been volunteering at the NCC Kids CX events, which aims to show kiddos how fun cyclocross and riding your bike is. Groups like JAM are there and opening doors into the cycling world which is inspirational. Ride your bike. Have fun (getting sendy). Get stronger. Become part of a family. It’s pretty sweet!
