Introducing YoungMajors NYCC!

The New York Cycle Club (NYCC) and Major Taylor Iron Riders (MTIR) will collaborate on a youth training program this Fall that brings more young people -- with an emphasis on Black, Latinx, and Asian boys and girls -- to the lifestyle and discipline of road cycling. The experience of NYCC’s trademark SIG training series will be leveraged to develop this program.

Our goal is to spread our love of cycling as a transformative lifestyle, and share the wonders and excitement of road cycling to young people who may not otherwise have the opportunity to learn about the sport.
