FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Junior Cycling Program adds to Roswell’s “Bicycle Friendly Community”
The City of Roswell is known as a cycle-friendly place to live. It is the only city in Georgia to earn the national “Bicycle Friendly Community” designation. Bike Roswell!, a cycling advocacy group, works with the City to promote safe cycling and encourage more cyclists with improved parks and roadways. The City is home to the Historic Roswell Criterium held annually in downtown Roswell. Widely attended by spectators and families, this popular event brings 700 race entries from amateurs and international pros. In addition, cyclists can rely on Roswell Bicycles, the largest professionally staffed bicycle retailer in Georgia to continue to offer the cycling community superior service and products.
What more can a Bicycle Friendly Community ask for?
How about a junior road cycling program for youth ages 7-18 run by professional USA Cycling coaches who teach basic cycling skills through competitive race strategies?
Roswell Bicycles and Frazier Cycling have joined forces to start a new competitive junior road cycling team based out of Roswell, GA. The new Roswell program targets junior cyclists (ages 7 -18) in the Roswell/Alpharetta/Marietta area. Frazier Cycling has the largest junior development program in the southeast based out of Suwanee, GA, and has produced 3 national champions and earned 17 national medals. Recognized by USA Cycling as a role model for other junior initiatives, the Roswell program implements the “team approach” to competitive cycling and the importance of sportsmanship and character development. Backed by Roswell Bicycles’ sponsorship and support the new program will surely become one of the southeast’s powerhouses in junior cycling. Roswell Bicycles (roswellbicycles.com) is ranked one of the top 100 bicycle retailers in the USA and supports cycling at all levels of participation.
