Cycling Academy

We develop champions, not cyclists.

 

We are 100% focused on performance and taking hands with young riders who have already shown that they are exceptional athletes irrespective of gender or race. The Absolute Motion Cycling Academy is not there to do little for many. It’s there to do much for a few.

We want to do more…

With the need to help more young people growing, a decision was taken to create a more structured process through which to facilitate the support as well as the interventions the team at Absolute Motion can provide. This allows more people to contribute to the process which in turn will allow us to assist more young people and for this reason the Absolute Motion Cycling Academy was established.

The larger Absolute Motion business is about bikes and the people who ride them, irrespective of age, gender or race. If you #lovetheride you are welcome in the Absolute Motion family. Absolute Motion is a large multi-national coaching business, has a small bike shop in Hilton, KZN, organize various cycling adventures and there are Absolute Motion Cycling Clubs all over South Africa.

The Absolute Motion Cycling Academy will benefit from all the activities from the larger Absolute Motion, but will be very strictly and independently managed as a registered NPO with its own independent management board and full transparency of all activities.

Financial Support

Where funding comes from…

At this time the AMCA is funded through the Absolute Motion Coaching business, with a portion of all coaching fees being retained to help fund the dreams of these amazing young people as well as the goodwill of a couple of individuals who contribute to the AMCA on a regular basis.

Off course the AMCA needs funding, this goes without saying, but it also needs your love, support and encouragement.

We would love for you to be part of this exciting journey of touching young people through the bike in a way that exceeds their wildest dreams. We will be sharing the stories of these amazing young men and women regularly and if you want to be part of their journey, please join the Absolute Motion Cycling Academy Facebook page.
