Boulder Junior Cycling (BJC) is a year-round cycling program in Boulder, Colorado whose mission is to develop, coach and inspire junior cycling athletes. BJC was founded in 2006 and is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. BJC provides programs for all abilities in Road Cycling, Mountain Biking, and Cyclocross for ages 8-18. BJC offers a professional coaching staff that brings a high level of training and experience to the program. Our athletes are both recreational riders and competitive racers who have won state and national championships. BJC has been designated a “Center of Excellence” for junior development by USA Cycling every year since 2008.
This is a month-long campaign where kids raise money to support their team while testing their skills and endurance on a fun and challenging course.
Our fundraising goal this year is $15,000. To reach this goal, BJC athletes are encouraged to collect donations from their community during the month of October.
At the end of October, we’ll hold the Bike-a-Thon event, where riders will complete as many laps as possible within a set amount of time on our custom-built course at Robson’s Ranch. The event will be spread over several evenings to avoid a large gathering. The laps are adjusted for each age group.
Athletes age 8+ in all BJC programs are encouraged to participate, not just cyclocross! Last year, more than 80% of BJC athletes raised money!
Athletes can earn sweet prizes by raising money. The more they raise, the more prizes they can win. Stay tuned for an announcement of all the cool prizes.
Community organizations like BJC play an important role in shaping our youth, teaching life lessons, and improving health. Fundraising campaigns are an essential part of BJC’s work. The money we raise will help us:
- Award additional scholarships to low-income families
- Provide a higher level of training to further develop our coaching staff
- Expand and diversify our award-winning cycling curriculum
Thank you for helping us get more kids on bikes!
