Testimonials

 

October, 2018: “Thanks for all that you do. BJC is truly an amazing organization and hands down the best run team we have interacted with.”

October, 2016: “My son is LOVING BJC! He talks about it all the time and is always heading over to the park to practice on his own. It’s been really great and the coaches are awesome. Such an awesome and unique experience you are all providing to so many kids.”

October, 2016: “Expert coaches, fun vibe, awesome skill development. Our kids are having a blast. You’re doing something right!”

December, 2016: “Thanks for everything this season. You have created such a supportive and encouraging program– the community is really wonderful. The best I have seen as a Mom of any sport we have done!”

December, 2018: “I wanted to say a big thank you for everything that you provided for my son during his first year as a member of BJC. Being a part of BJC was everything we expected and more. You all should be very proud of what you have accomplished and the many life lessons you are able to give kids and adults. My wife and I probably learned more about how to be good parents than my son did about being a good kid. Truth be told, I initially thought of BJC as an organization that produces national champions and focuses on getting good race results. Obviously, I don’t think that now. Your success is providing kids an opportunity to learn about life that just happens to involve cycling. When I asked my son why he likes BJC, he didn’t talk about his race results. He likes the interaction with other kids and the coaches. He said he learned about facing challenges and overcoming unexpected obstacles. He developed friendships with his teammates that happened to be his competitors also. He was given the opportunity to be a mentor to younger kids. But most of all he felt he was part of a family that truly cared for him and would always be there for him.”

November, 2018: “Just wanted to say thank you on behalf of my daughter and our family for such a great season. It was our first experience with organized cycling and it was so great. I think you guys provided the right balance of challenge and fun, and it was great to see the new skills she learned. She was really reluctant about participating in a race, but she had a great time at Schoolyard Cross. She made friends too and even hung out with her teammate last weekend. I think it’s a great sport for her as she loves inclement weather 🙂 We’ll be looking forward to the spring season.”

January, 2019: “Hey, just wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you! My son had a lot of fun at today’s practice and even asked if he could get up early tomorrow morning to go for a workout before school. Thank you for putting together a fun workout that is motivating my kid to get out and get strong!”

January, 2019: “I just wanted to thank you for everything for Nationals. We had a blast. My son said it was his favorite race of the year! I was in awe and inspired by watching the 11-12, 13-14, and 15-16 year old races…true grit….what an amazing day. We feel lucky to have found BJC and are so happy to be a part of it!”

July, 2018: “Just want to say thank you to you and the other BJC Coaches. My daughter has absolutely LOVED riding with BJC last spring and over the summer.  She loves the sport and is looking forward to riding again this fall.”

July, 2018: “Just wanted to take a moment to thank you and BJC for coming to our race. BJC is a class act and I would recommend to anyone in Boulder who has an interested junior to check you guys out.  I was super impressed by your kids coming up and thanking me and the crew for putting on the race. Practically choked me up (I’m such a sap).  One of our staff noted the interaction when you all came up and was hugely impressed by the attitude of the kids and the genuine appreciation they showed.”

 

January, 2017: “I just want you to know how much we appreciate all you have done for our kid. Having a podium finish this year felt like a huge life lesson: this is what happens when you stay at it and work hard. So thanks again for all that you do – both the big things and the vital little things.”

January, 2017: (From a rider) “I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for all of your support and encouragement this season. My year has been really spectacular and I grew so much in just a few short months. None of that would have been possible without BJC. All the practices and fun reinvigorated my love for bike racing when I was feeling a little burned out, and your support and advice allowed me to use that new passion and turn it into results. I’ve gained so much wisdom since this September and BJC was a huge part of that!”

September, 2017: “Thank you for being a trusted mentor and giving us parents practical skills to be better parents. I am so glad we found BJC.”

October, 2017: “My son has grown so much from his experience and raced today for the first time. While I don’t care so much about whether he races or not frankly, I do see that it is training him to deal with intensity in a way that is life affirming and good, especially with the world in the state that it is. Thank you for all the work that you do to make this happen.”

October, 2017: “Thank you for being an amazing mentor who is so clearly invested in the passionate success of our kids.”

November, 2017: “Thanks for running a first class program!”

November, 2017: “Thank you so much again for an incredible first season with BJC. My son loved the program and so did we! Thank you for bringing this great sport closer to our kids so that they can grow and learn to love it. We are looking forward to mountain bike season and getting our other two kids involved in the program as well. I wanted to be sure you knew how much we appreciated everything these past few months.”

November, 2017: “I wanted to thank you for your work with BJC. Your enthusiasm and love for the sport is contagious. All this while having your priorities right and living them as a role model for my son. I couldn’t be happier as a Dad that he’s under your tutelage. He talks about lines, efficiency, recovering mentally from mistakes…All applicable to work and life lessons.”

November, 2017: “Before BJC, my son was in another sport but it never really clicked after many years on the team. But he has instantly found his sport and passion in cycling and laughs/smiles so much at practices. It’s so neat for me that he owns it himself and not something I encouraged or forced him into. Because of your time and commitment to giving back even when you have your own kids and busy schedule, he feels like he belongs in this positive BJC environment. If only you could hear our conversations on the ride home from practice, he is so excited to share what he learned.”

November, 2017: “My son doesn’t often share too much about practices (as I think he is beat!) but after Tuesday’s snowy practice he shared that it was one of his favorite days so far. His reasons were that it was a small special group & hot chocolate, cookies and the snow! Thank you for this special day. I love this team & all it represents. So happy that we have found a place like this. Thanks!”
