Two Rider Levels:

- Tier I – older/faster/more experienced (~ age 12 – 19; Race age 13-14 and up)
*Tier II riders (younger) will practice 2x per week from Aug 29th to Nov 2nd. After daylight savings on Nov 6th, there will be an option of continuing with one ride per week, training outside as well as inside in a cycling studio.
*Tier I riders (older) will practice as above like Tier II, but after Nov 6th their one practice per week outside and inside is built into the schedule (i.e. not optional).
