BYRDS Cycling

The Treasure Valley’s first, and most experienced youth cycling program, for 23 years.

B.Y.R.D.S. Cycling (Boise Young Rider Development Squad) is in the 23rd year offering Treasure Valley youth access and support to participate in the sport of cycling.  On an annual basis we lead daily rides, weekly camps and clinics in mountain biking, road biking, and cyclocross for kids starting as young as 6 years of age.

BYRDS is:

  • Designed to introduce and support youth across the community (ages 6 to 18+) in the sport of cycling.
  • Recreational for the young rider interested to be involved in cycling.
  • Competitive for the young rider that wants to prepare, train, and race at the highest levels of the sport.   For example, former BYRDS riders currently racing on the World Tour:
    • Will Barta (Movistar)
    • Matteo Jorgenson (Movistar)
  • Competitive program is year-round
  • A 501 (c) (3) non-profit supporting Treasure Valley kids
  • Recognized by USA Cycling as a “Center of Excellence” as among the very best youth specific cycling programs in the USA.
  • The most active youth specific cycling program in the USA with weekly activities in road cycling, mountain biking, and cyclocross.
    • Designed for kids and families.
  • At BYRDS… “no one sits on the bench!”
