CRCA holds club races for men, women, masters and juniors in graded races based on ability. Races are held on weekends from March through September in Central Park. CRCA also promotes a number of open races each year, in which non-club members may participate. We are the largest racing club in the United States.
The emphasis of the club is development — preparing riders to succeed in open races. Expert coaching is free to members.
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.
