Free Summer Riding Program, June 28th-August 23rd, 2024

We have developed a summer program for the next generation of road riders! 

Kids ages 8-12 years old will be able to ride with elite level riders, including former professional racers, Chris and Megan Horner (when available) on Friday mornings June 28th-August 23rd.  Time and location TBD.

The focus will be on safety, proper riding technique and fun.  Our hope is that we instill a life-long love of the sport of cycling. 

If a rider cannot make all the Friday sessions, that is fine.  They will just need to connect with and let her know at least a few days before the session. Please fill out the Rider Registration forms return to  Any questions, call 541-480-6975.

The reason that our program and our races are free for juniors is to remove any financial barriers to accessing road cycling.  This program is designed to reach out to juniors of all socio-economic backgrounds.  

The Loaner Bike Library has been established by the Horner Cycling Foundation and has over 20 bikes of various sizes for youth.  These bikes are available to any junior that would like to ride in the program.

The Bend Summer Criterium Series will take place at Pacific Crest Middle School, July 3, 10, 17 and 24, 2024.  Kids that are between 4-8 years old will race one lap around the course starting at 4:50 p.m.  Kids ages 9-12 will race a 15–20-minute race starting at 5:05 p.m.  We encourage all kids to come out and take advantage of this great opportunity.  

The Horner Cycling Foundation is also putting on the Cascade Cycling Classic Criterium in downtown Bend, Oregon on August 10th.  Junior races and a kiddie crit will take place as well.  Details about the race are at
