Kids of Mud

Kids of Mud (KOM) is the official youth cycling program of the Manitoba Cycling Association (MCA) administered by a group of participating clubs. KOM is a learn-to-ride and learn-to-race program for kids 16 and younger covering the FundamentalsLearn to Train and Train to Train stages of the Long Term Athlete Development pathway. Through the help of certified coaches and volunteers, riders will learn the basics of off-road cycling with an opportunity to challenge their skill and fitness in a fun race series.

Riders are registered with the MCA in one of these internationally recognized youth cycling categories: under 17, under 15, under 13, under 11 and under 9 (their age as of December 31st).

Training takes place twice a week with the program beginning mid/late April and wrapping up at the end of June. Kids wishing to ride must have a certified cycling helmet, a mountain bike with hand brakes and gears, and able to ride their bike without training wheels. Training with Kids of Mud includes safety, braking, gears, hills, racing (optional), riding over small and large obstacles, trail riding, and more.

The Kids of Mud training program is run by certified coaches in smaller clubs in Manitoba.
