Stephen Burke is recruiting young riders.

As most of you know, Calgary is extremely lucky to have Stephen Burke living in our city. He is a super resource if you have a son or daughter that is interested in cycling and wants some more formal training. If the young riders join Synergy, Bicisport, or CycleMeisters, there is possible access to casino funds which can be used to offset the cost of coaching. Stephen is the right coach for your youngster or your paralympic athlete in the family.

I recently got to tap into Stephen's knowledge at a weekend long course and his reputation was not exaggerated at all. I look forward to taking every adult oriented course he puts on and highly recommend him for your youngster.

Here is a message from him:

Dear Athletes, Parents and Calgary Area Clubs

I just wanted to let you know that I am planning a clinic for new
riders interested in the National Cycling Centre Development Program; for
those who have already started with us over the summer and for the few
people who I have been in touch with regarding the program for the fall. It
will be a good opportunity for everyone to get some cycling experience and
skills before we take a break and resume training in October.

The Clinic will run Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday from 1:00 to 4:00;
Monday will be a Track Focused Day, Tuesday a Road and Wednesday a MTB
Focus. We will provide bikes for the Track Session and you're responsible
to provide a road bike or MTB for Tuesday and Wednesday. If you would like
to rent a bike the Outdoor Program Centre here at the University can rent
bikes (Road or MTB).

Please email me so I can send you a Waiver and Novice Clinic Registration
form (Please note this clinic is Free)

The Clinic will run each day from the Glenmore Velodrome in SW
Calgary. Take Crowchild and exit at 50th Ave SW, Head East and when you see
the Athletic Fields your there...the Velodrome is next to the Skating Rink.

Finally if you have any questions please call me at 403-220-8008
(office) or on my Cell 403-681-9566
