CRCA Race Clinics

Each year, as part of CRCA’s coaching and development program, the club hosts Men’s and Women’s Race Clinics. The clinics are designed to introduce riders to the club, and bicycle racing. Many elite racers have been introduced to the sport through CRCA’s race clinics, including current UCI Hour Record holder and Olympian, Evelyn Stevens.

The clinic format is a simulated race in Central Park. Experienced racers will ride with the field, providing assistance and advice. CRCA Coaches will be on hand to provide instruction before, during, and after the clinic. Men and women race in separate fields.

An information session will be offered prior to the clinic. CRCA members will be present to discuss how they got into racing, as well as answer questions about the clinic, CRCA, or racing in general. The clinic is a great opportunity to meet fellow new racers, and try racing for the first time.

... I had a friend who encouraged me to do the CRCA women’s clinic.... CRCA (Century Road Club Association) is an awesome organization. That was June 2008. That was my first race.
