GS Andiamo is a well-organized development program run by volunteer coaches and supporters with well over 200 years of combined experience in the sport of cycling. We are now in our 7th year and we are focused on using the fundamental tenants of long-term athlete development to help young athletes build life skills through the sport of cycling. We do not press kids to compete. Rather we strive to help young riders use bikes to explore their world and develop their own identity in sport. A key outcome goal of our program is for our athletes to become active for life, which is developed from a platform of physical literacy through participation in our quality programs.

The Bike Loan Program
The bicycle library loan program is a cornerstone of the club and designed to overcome financial barriers associated with bicycle ownership. Each rider is professionally fit to a bicycle and the bicycle replaced as they grow so they are comfortable riding the bike, which ensures that the bike handles properly so they can ride safely. We have the capacity to outfit kids with appropriately sized bikes as our club has many bicycles in various sizes that range from 20” wheeled bicycles up to 60+ cm. Currently the club has ~75 road bicycles, 20 track bicycles, and a dozen time trial bikes in the fleet, along with a significant inventory of quality race wheels, and other equipment.
