Youth License Information



USA Cycling offers youth racing licenses for kids six years old to a racing age of eight years old. These licenses allow race directors the opportunity the help young cyclists grow their passion for bike racing while racing against their peers. Youth license holders can only enter youth races, which must be on closed courses with circuits of no longer than five kilometers. Similar to younger juniors, youth racers are restricted to massed-start legal bikes with no aero equipment.

The price of a youth license is $35 each and allows a rider to race in road, mountain bike, track and cyclo-cross events. Youth athletes interested in BMX are encouraged to visit the USA BMX website.

To buy a youth or junior license, a parent must create a separate account for the rider. For questions on USA Cycling licenses, please contact our membership department at 719-434-4200 or
