The YCC in Morgantown, WV

The YCC collaboration in Morgantown, WV has become a model for interactions between YCC partners in communities throughout the country! Together, the YCC provides a pathway for children to ride bikes from age 6 into adulthood!

In 2019, leaders of the national youth cycling programs sat down together to build better youth cycling in the U.S.  In collaboration with the Brad and Alys Smith Outdoor Economic Development Collaborative at West Virginia University and other local stakeholders, the YCC drew upon the expertise of each program to implement a range of bike-centered programming. 

Drawing upon the lessons learned from Morgantown, the YCC is committed to fostering collaboration between youth cycling programs in communities throughout the country.
