Live to ride, ride to live

The Horner Cycling Foundation, founded in 2023 by Chris & Megan Horner was established in response to the absence of a junior development road cycling program in Central Oregon. Because of the dramatic growth in the 18 and under population since 2020, non-school related sports programs are at capacity. Local youth mountain bike programs have long waitlists and are nearly impossible to gain entry. HCF will seek out potential road enthusiasts, assisting with procuring equipment and provide necessary skills to ride well and even race.

The Horner Cycling Foundation will also be happy to welcome all interested   members or with the Community Club program which includes basic instruction for new cyclists as well as exciting opportunities for more advanced riders to join Chris and the juniors during training sessions.
