The Darwin Cycling Club has a very active program for their Junior Members.
In 2016 the Darwin Junior Development Squad was formed and Tony Marker was appointed as Head Coach. The Juniors in the squad are emerging young cyclists who represent the Northern Territory at National Junior Track Series, SA Junior State Track Championships, NT Titles, Nationals - Track & Road and Tasmanian Christmas Carnival.
There are also a number of Darwin Cycling Club races our Juniors compete in and they can be found on the events calendar http://darwincyclingclub.com.a....
The group trains at the Velodrome at Old McMillians Road next to Bagot Park on Tuesdays from 5pm and Thursdays at the Hidden Valley Race Track from 5.30pm.
In the wet season usually commencing October Cyclocross is a family fun night riding mountain bikes in the centre of velodrome. We encourage all the family to ride not just kids, so mum and dad you are allowed some fun too.
There is BBQ and drinks provided with all funds raised going back into junior cycling.
All Darwin Cycling Club events and trainings are sanctioned by Cycling Australia. As a non-member you are allowed three Come and Try events and then you are required to join the club. Junior memberships start at $32 and all details can be found http://darwincyclingclub.com.a...
