5/7 CCAP Breakaway Benefit Ride / Festival, Winding Trails - Get more kids on bikes!

For those club members who don't already know ...

The CT Cycling Advancement Program is a 501.c.3 non-profit organization on a mission to get more kids on bikes. The CCAP has over 400 kids participating in their school, regional and travel teams, for the MTB, Road and Cyclocross seasons. The Farmington Valley Youth Cycling team is our regional CCAP affiliate and has worked closely with Eastern Bloc Cycling Club members and Benidorm bikes since 2018 to offer MTB, Road and Cyclocross riding and racing to our local kids. Many of our EBCC members serve as volunteer coaches for FVYC teams, and the FVYC is extremely appreciative of all the support we've received from Jan, Doug and crew at Benidorm Bikes, and from EBCC club members over the years. You've probably met some of our juniors on EBCC club rides. About the CCAP
