Potential Youth Cycling Race Series Survey
A number of us in the bicycling community (Charlotte Sports Cycling, The Cycle Path, Cool Breeze Cyclery, Trek Bicycle Store of Charlotte and Carolina Bicycle Company) are looking to put together a youth mountain bike series early in 2012. The purpose of this message is to gage interest and potential participation.
The basic vision is to have an initial 3 race, mountain bike series this Spring; one race per month to get things started. Ages from 6 to 18 (boys and girls), racing in age group brackets, to be determined, would participate. The venues would be in the Charlotte / Lake Norman area. We have the wherewithal to put on a successful set of events, but of course, we need participants. Asheville has set up a pretty successful program that we will try to emulate. We hope that over time, this could additionally help create an inter-scholastic competition.
But, first things first. If you have an interest to have your child participate in this league it would be great if you would respond to a survey we have set up at the following link: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/BZCG9PV The survey will take less than 2 minutes to fill out, but will give us a good idea of the viability of our idea. We would welcome (encourage) you to send along any comments you may want to add as well.
From this input, we will get back to you and let you know how we are progressing. Thank you for your interest and hopefully your response. A response by 12/16 would be appreciated. We are very excited about this opportunity to create a fun and athletic venue for the area’s youth.
