Other Programs

BJC offers various other programs during the year.

Secret Training: 8th grade and above

Off-season training by most top cyclists today has something in common: they all practice a variety of off-the-bike sports and activities to get stronger and provide a foundation for their coming season.

We call this “secret training.” From strength training to agility drills, from hiking to team sports, the best athletes like to mix it up with off-the-bike training. This keeps the body and mind well balanced and fresh.

Join BJC coaches on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons for 7 weeks of BJC secret training sessions. Some days you’ll hike or trail run or play team sports. Other days might be balance and agility work, and we’ll always include focused strength training to build power on the bike. We’ll meet at various locations in Boulder, and most sessions will be outdoors. Open to 8th grade and above only. Register by Wed Jan 8th. First session is Tues Jan 14th.

  • Session runs Jan 14th to Feb 27th (7 weeks)
  • Tues & Thurs, 4:15 – 5:45 p.m. (Practices may go longer as daylight allows)
  • Various outdoor locations in Boulder (indoor as needed)
  • Strength, agility, fun
  • Details for each practice will be announced weekly

…And more!

Riders will work on their own bike using their own tools if they have them. For example, riders will learn to use their own multi-tool, pump, and other items that they normally carry on rides. The goal is to make the riders as self sufficient as possible! (Trailside tools are required, shop tools are not required but are nice to have.)
