The PCBC Youth Academy is for riders between the ages of 10-19*.  Our weekly rides are focused on having fun and building skills and fitness.  We ride in the Maraetai Forest and have a great crew of professional and volunteer coaches and have 8-10 riding groups, each aimed at a different development levels and ages.  

Our rides occur during the school terms 1 and 2 on Tuesday nights 5-7pm and we meet at the Maraetai boat ramp car park.  Registration for the term is $180 and PCBC Membership is required for attendance at our sessions. The season begins 19/10/21 and finishes 12/4/22, with a break for summer from 15/12/21 - 8/2/22.

You can learn more about becoming a PCBC member at - https://www.pcbc.co.nz/membership/

Impact of Covid - if our riding is suspended due to Covid for more than 2 weeks, we will give you credit from the lost weeks to use next season.

Please take a look at the table below before beginning your registration.
When you register your rider, you must indicate their riding group.  This is used to help us sort riders into groups.
