Bikeworks Junior Race Team

Our Mission: Bikeworks Juniors is a volunteer-run program developed in 2017 dedicated to turning young cyclists into confident junior athletes. The program pairs kids with experienced cycling coaches who teach the joy of riding while promoting a safe and fun riding environment for any child from age 4-14.

Bikeworks Race Team is a free program sponsored exclusively by Lititz Bikeworks for riders ages 9-15. Our team competes in and around the Keystone state in UCI sanctioned cyclocross events. Our coaching staff consists of a group of volunteers dedicated to practice, endurance, and teamwork for the team. If you are interested in volunteering, coaching, or supporting Bikeworks Juniors, please contact head coach George Fox by email georgefox28@gmail.com

Below is a list of races the Bikeworks Team has identified as “marquis events”. Our team will have a strong presence at each of these races and we strongly encourage anyone to join us in cheering each other on!
