Applications are now open for Para-Cycling Fall Weekend Camp in the Ottawa Area

Ontario Cycling will be hosting a 2-day Para-Cycling Fall Weekend Camp for athletes actively training and competing at the Provincial and National level. The 2-day camp will consist of group rides with coaching guidance and support. We will have a pre-camp zoom call to review the agenda in more detail and take into consideration individual needs and align with athlete YTP’s. The 2-day camp will also include several group presentations and meetings to outline the 2024 OC para-cycling program and provide opportunities to learn from each other and create a training group for alignment throughout the Winter months.
