The emphasis of the club is development — preparing riders to succeed in open races. Expert coaching is free to members. The club looks to hold forums for tips on training, nutrition and other topics of interest to cyclists.
Everyone interested in bicycle racing and riding is welcome to join CRCA. There are a number of sub-teams within the club but membership in CRCA does not require belonging to a sub-team. In fact, new members are encouraged to initially race without joining a sub-team.
