How CRCA Membership works

CRCA is a volunteer run community organization. For a small fee and a pre-determined volunteer contribution to the club CRCA members have access to the club's famous CRCA Club Series in Central Park as well as the club's comprehensive year-round coaching program and a variety of other events and benefits.

Marshaling AssignmentS

To make it possible for the club to hold races in Central Park, each racing member must marshal during the racing season, which runs from March through November. 

Marshals are required by the NYC Parks Department to be stationed on the Central Park course to ensure the safety of racers and other park users. Marshals also serve as ambassadors of the club for those who stop to ask for information.

Once you have joined, login to schedule your dates. Please refer to the Marshaling section of the website for additional details. 

New Racers Skills Coaching Session

Before participating in the CRCA Club Series all new club members who are USAC category 4 and 5 riders must participate in a free New Member Skills session to learn essential bike handling skills for staying safe in a race. Check for the next session on the Calendar.

Order the CRCA Kit

CRCA kit - either that of the Club or one of the Club's various sub-teams - is required to participate in the CRCA Club Race Series (exceptions are granted for jackets during the cold early season races). 

Additional information on ordering the 2018 CRCA Club Kit will be published soon.
