Seacoast Velo Racing
Seacoast Velo Racing is a co-ed youth mountain bike racing team for riders grades 5th through 12th with a focus on developing beginners who are looking to improve in a structured environment, have fun and represent Seacoast Velo Racing (SVR) in a positive manner. We are looking for you riders who are willing to be coached. We are offering a number of programs for 2019.
Spring Mountain Biking
For our second year, Seacoast Velo Racing will be participating in the New England High School Cycling Association (NEHSCA). This 4 year old organization hosts 6 races each spring with over 400 racers. Races held in locations between Rhode Island and New Hampshire from April until June.
Last race season, we had over 30 riders on the team.
Practices are held at Stratham Hill Park starting in early April. The rides on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 4-5:30 PM.
Registration will open on November 1st for the Spring season. Registration will close on February 28th.
Registration can be found at www.bikereg.com/nehsca-team-seacoast-velo

Summer Race Program
Practices will still be on Tuesday and Thursdays, same times, 4:00-:5:30 at Stratham Hill Park.
The race team will race in the Stratham Parks and Recreation, Gordon Barker Summer Mountain Bike Race Series. These races on Thursday nights at the Park.
Fee for the summer race team will be $100. Registration will be handled on Eventbright. Registration fee will cover entry fees to races at the park and post season party!
Race team practices will start after the July 4th Holiday... last race is August 15th.
The summer race team is open to everyone! A great chance for kids to ride and race that could not attend the spring team due to scheduling conflicts.
Riders are asked to provide their own mountain bikes but if you need one we can help you find one - just let us know.
If you are a member of the NEHSCA league, there is a bike buy program. Get up to 25% off of a new bike! Trek, Cannondale, Specialized, Ibis and Niner bikes!
