The 2022 Junior Cyclocross Training Series begins in just under two weeks!

After two years off due to the pandemic, we’re really excited to be able to offer the program again. We’ve been busy building trails in Look Park for the past several weekends and can’t wait to ride ’em with the kids!

The NCC partners with the Northampton Parks & Recreation Department to run the junior cyclocross training series for kids in grades 2 through 8. Registration is online through Parks and Rec.

Dates: Monday April 25, May 2, May 9, May 16, and May 23 (rain dates, if needed, could be June 6 and June 13)
Time: 5:30 – 6:45 PM, plan to arrive about 5:15 PM
Location: Dow Pavilion at Look Park (note: there is a parking fee if you enter the park by car)
Registration: Register online through the Northampton Parks & Recreation Department. To register, you will have to scroll down the registration page, add junior cyclocross training to your selection list, add it to your cart, and then check out.

As registration fills up, please let me know if you are wait listed and I will make the call to the Northampton Recreation Department to ask them to let you in.

I can’t wait for the first night of cyclocross! I love seeing all the smiling kids flying through Look Park on their bikes. It’s always my favorite time of year.

We have been working to prepare the course for the kids. Thanks to all our volunteers.
