Video: The Power of Cycling to Change Lives in 'Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop'

In the heart of Virginia, the Richmond Cycling Corps (RCC) is hard at work connecting with local youth and helping them discover the power of cycling. RCC Director Matt Kuhn has built an incredible community of young cyclists and has helped kids find their way as aspiring engineers, professional racers, and influential community members. Matt's passion for the sport helps create a common ground for these young riders to explore their new talents and connect with other cyclists.

The club’s newest program, called “Legacy,” is designed to help foster riders coming up through the RCC program and help turn them into future leaders. One goal of the Legacy program is to one day bring a rider up through the ranks of the program and have them take over and lead the charge into the future.

Creating new bonds and building a stronger cycling community in Richmond, the RCC is helping build a better future, one sweet jump at a time. Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop.

 Man I love to see this on so many levels. These are my home trails. RVA has lots of good trail right downtown in the city proper. Perfect setup for a program like this. Being raised without a father myself, I can say that positive male role models like Matt are the reason I am not in jail or dead. These boys are lucky to have this kind of opportunity and I hope they thrive.

 We see these kids grinding it out at every NICA and VAHS race we've had in the last few years here in VA. Both my wife and
I have interacted with a few of their kids during races. (We coach another team) The kids were very gracious and respectful, very much a reflection of their team and coaches.

 I live in Barbados, where the population is predominantly black. We have a growing MTB scene here and as much as we share we share social media content regardless of the riders race or ethnicity, it warms my heart to have read this article and see people who look like me so actively involved.

 "it warms my heart to have read this article and see people who look like me so actively involved" This sentiment seems quite racist.

 I'm not a local (Fredericksburg, so I'm closeish) but this is so awesome. I ride a lot on hose trails, and it's great to see this happening in such a cool town.

 I've only been to Richmond once, but loved every minute of it! Such a cool place with vibrant communities everywhere. Glad to see that vibrancy spread to the RVA MTB scene.
