Hosking Junior Bunch

Calling All Juniors at Canberra CC, Vikings CC and Canberra Off Road Cyclists.

Chloe Hosking

CCC has partnered with club member and cycling legend Chloe Hosking to organise a regular Juniors’ ride.

Chloe will host the Juniors on an appropriately paced ride starting at 630 am from The Pedlar.

Key Info

630am start from the Pedlar Cafe, Cambell

The Route

We'll tackle this route for the next Hosking Junior Bunch ride on the 27th March. The ride is open to all riders from 10-16 years of age (and their parents).

Starting and finishing at The Pedalar on Constitution Av in Campbell, the ride will start with an appropriately paced ride around the lake and the wetlands focussing on bunch formation and group skills, before we head to Duntroon to tackle Mt. Pleasant where riders are encouraged to race (safely) to the top. Regrouping at the top before making our way back to the Pedlar, estimated return between 7:30/40am.

New riders

We welcome new riders to the bunch.

If you are the parent of a junior who is interested in giving cycling a go then this group is for you.

Each week Chloe will conduct a quick roll call and briefing for new riders before the ride commences.

Parents & Carers

Parents and carers of younger juniors are welcome to ride in a second bunch behind the juniors and provide support to the juniors as required. We ask that parents don't mix into the main junior bunch.

We ask that these riders also register here on EntryBoss.

It's Social
