A group in Johnson County is working to promote youth cycling.
The Youth Off-Road Riders Cycling Club first organized in March. There are currently 11 members and three trainers.
The members have a wide range in experience. Some have completed RAGBRAI while others are just learning how to bike.
Among the groups goals are to “foster a responsible attitude toward the use of roadways, trails, and the wilderness”, and to promote cycling as a means of transportation.
