Learn About the Front Rangers Teams

Feel The Excitement

How it works

We ride in ability groups, based on endurance and skill, at all our weekly rides. The number of groups depends on how many people (juniors and leaders) that come to a ride. Coaching is appropriate for each ability level. These weekly rides are for all members, regardless of the color teams.

In addition to weekly rides, we have Color Teams that are designed around commitment, goals and desire as much as ability. All Front Rangers are invited to participate in the Yellow activities. White and Blue tiers are individualized with activities and coaching to reach particular goals.

These tiers are NOT to be divisive. Rather, they form a progression for youth to be recognized, to improve, to develop, and to lead. All the tiers and activities focus on challenging the youth to grow at their level.

Please ask if there are skills you wish to learn or improve.

High School Composit Team

Highlander Racing

Highlanders is a composite team providing an opportunity for students in grades 9-12 to make new friends and compete in the Colorado High School Cycling League. This is a separate program, but also under the Front Rangers umbrella.  The inclusion allows joint resources and coaching while meeting the league requirements, and it expands development opportunities in our youth cycling programs.

Talk with us about eligibility with respect to your high school and available programs.
