A Little Film About Our Sponsor Brad and Why We Love Him

Join Us at our Monthly Meetings

We meet on the first Monday of every month (unless that’s a holiday). We gather either at the Flying Saucer in the Triangle or at Mellow Johnny’s. We have food and beer, followed by discussion of club business, race results, and a guest speaker. Past speakers have included pro racers, experts on nutrition, cycling coaches, frame builders, massage therapists, and even an historian who talked about doping in cycling. Meetings are open to members and guests.
