Star City Cycling is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation dedicated to the growth of youth cycling. Our goal is to create a new generation of cycling enthusiasts in the Roanoke Valley, and to instill in each of our participants a life-long passion for the sport. We believe that cycling is one of the most effective ways to promote a healthy lifestyle, encourage a love for the outdoors, and teach kids important lessons in sportsmanship, self-reliance, and determination. Since our founding in 2008 as the East Coasters Junior Team, we have introduced countless local boys and girls to the joys of mountain biking and the thrill of competition.
We offer separate programs for recreational and competitive riders, with membership open to boys and girls between 8 and 18. Racing has always been a major part of what we do, but as we continue to grow we have a number of kids who just want to ride for fun without the pressure of competition. Our Adventure Club program allows these kids to develop a mastery of mountain biking skills and have fun with new friends, all while participating in a sport that can lead to a lifetime of active enjoyment.
