The Cycling Development Foundation Inc (CDF) was founded in 2016 and is a not-for-profit incorporated Association created to provide a proven pathway for aspiring young athletes that wish to enter the professional cycling ranks – achieved through the use of applied research, best in class coaching and a whole of person approach.
Furthermore, the Foundation aims to make a positive and sustainable impact within the Laverton township, a First Nation’s community, and its surrounding region. The CDF’s approach involves implementing a world-class community engagement program which utilizes cycling as the central educational method.
The Foundation aims to have equal representation of boys and girls in the junior program, as well as equal representation between men and women in the National Road Series team.
Our programs are centered on developing the whole person using applied research, best in class nutrition and strength training, as well as teaching the importance of developing grit, resilience and goal setting; lifelong skills that will stay with our athletes and First Nation’s kids for life, no matter what journey they decide to take with their cycling.
