Get Involved – AusCycling's Junior Virtual Camp


In a year that has affected many participation opportunities due to COVID-19, AusCycling is pleased to announce an exciting opportunity for junior riders to participate in and learn via a Virtual Camp on October 9 and 10.

The Virtual Camp, aimed at riders between ages 13-16, aims to re-connect our cycling community by presenting quality educational cycling content by experts in their field and creating an environment to learn and develop.

In these uncertain times, with many dealing with lockdown and isolation, changes in the way we communicate, plus radical changes to training programs and racing calendars, the camp is an opportunity for riders and parents to connect.

The camp will be hosted by former professional Scott McGrory and will feature presentations from athletes and staff a part of the Australian Cycling Team as well as other special guests.

Please note you must register for each day using the link below. In addition, all participants must have access to Zoom.
