About Our Program
Alkek Junior programs were created to inspire the next generation of track cyclists.
Youth Cycling League: Our free youth camps are aimed at kids aged 8 to 16.
Team Training: Low to no-cost training & support for all Juniors through college.
Kids who attend our camps develop their cycling, gain sense of accomplishment and pride from learning new skills while having FUN! Leading to increased confidence on and off the bike.
We are operated by the 501c3 Greater Houston Cycling Foundation (GHCF), funded by sponsors and private contributions and supported by our volunteers and parents.
