BYRDS Cycling

25 Years! – The Treasure Valley’s first, and most experienced youth cycling program.

For 2 and 1/2 decades the B.Y.R.D.S. Cycling Program (Boise Young Rider Development Squad) has offered 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. Younger riders participating in the BYRDS spring and fall club rides are ‘trail-rides’ only, no road rides.

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 (Visma Lease a Bike)
  • 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!”
