Our Mission

Star City Cycling’s mission is to help young people safely and respectfully experience the rewards and challenges that mountain biking in our Blue Ridge region offers, within a team setting that promotes sportsmanship, fellowship, and personal commitment in the pursuit of competitive and non-competitive mountain bike events.

Our Goal

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.

About the Team

We offer membership to boys and girls between 8 and 18. Racing has always been a major part of what we do, however, it is not required. Our program allows 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.
