Join our group of road, triathlon, and/or mountain bike racers. The rides they choose are typically race training, fast, and require good group riding skills, including close drafting and echelons. Riders must be able to fend for themselves on directions and bike repair.
New racing members will need to sign a Team Contract before being allowed to purchase a racing jersey or be able to race.
Members will need to Follow the Race Forum for notifications on last-minute changes (e.g. cancellations, time or location changes).
