Are you interested in racing but don’t know if you have what it takes? Are you looking to gain the skills and fitness necessary to race? Are you looking to practice racing in a friendly environment with others like you, as well as with experienced racers? If so, then consider joining either the pedal RACING Team OR pedal CLUB.
If you are uncertain about racing, we suggest joining the CLUB. As a CLUB member, you will have access to all group rides which are ranked by difficulty, and the more difficult are led and attended by members of our racing team. CLUB members are also encouraged to participate in team racing clinics designed to teach useful race skills and tactics. If and when you think you are ready to race road, MTB or cyclocross, and the appropriate team leader agrees, you can join the RACING team by simply paying the dues and accepting the terms, or we can help you register for a race independently to make sure it’s what you want to do before joining our team. Of course, you can remain a CLUB member for as long as you desire and continue to enjoy its purchasing, social, and riding benefits no matter how you might progress from the rider you are today to the advanced rider you can become.
If you have no racing experience but are relatively certain you want to give racing a go and can commit to our low race minimum of three races a year, then by all means, apply to join the RACING Team! You will find a great, supportive group of people that will encourage and help you prepare for racing, as well as an abundance of group rides and racing clinics. For safety purposes, you will still need to be approved by the team leader of your declared main discipline (road, MTB or cyclocross). So, be prepared to attend a least one or more group rides with that leader, and the racing clinics he/she may ask you to attend.
