This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

The Connecticut Cycling Festival will feature a unique and challenging eight corner course in the heart of downtown Hartford.

The CT Cycling Festival partners with Hartford’s Envisionfest for a Ride and Expo on Sept. 21st. EnvisionFest will celebrate the ingenuity of the city and state, while offering a taste of the transformation of Hartford through the iQuilt plan.

This event supports the Connecticut Cycling Advancement Program (CCAP), whose 2014 goals are to oversee and assist in the state’s first high school cycling league and to create the Connecticut Junior Cycling Travel Team.

Amateur bikers can partake in the ride on the same course as the pros and support the CCAP, by registering for the Citizen’s Ride. A suggested $10 donation supports the organization’s mission.

The CCAP goal is to create a support system for youth development in the sport of cycling. It is about creating a cohesive program where everyone in the state of Connecticut can share common goals. Currently, Connecticut has high schools, regional clubs, and individuals attempting to create youth programs on their own. None of which have the support and organization to be a successful, truly sustainable program.
