We are just bike fans. We love to cheer, scream, and watch cycling.
I created this site because I’m a fan of local cycling and I had to spend hours getting schedules from different places just to get atop of all the different racing in Sacramento. I’ll update the site to try to include as much information as I can. If you know of anything I’m missing, please send it to me via the “contact us” page.
I grew up in the Bay Area in the early nineties and found mountain biking. I was an avid mountain biker until heading out to pan flat Dallas, Texas for grad school where my Diamondback Topanga was stolen and my busy schedule left me 80 pounds overweight. I forgot cycling until 2011 when a friend encouraged me to ride to deal with my weight. My first ride was short and my only goal was to make the lap back home without calling my wife to pick me up. The 9 mile loop took me 1 hour and 1 minute to complete. I knew I could easily go back out in a few days and get my time under an hour. The next time out, I got my hour goal and my average speed was just under 9 miles per hour. I said, “I bet if I push a little harder I can make 9 miles per hour.” Little by little I was addicted to trying to get a little faster. Slowly I rode longer distances and found more fun places to ride. I eventually picked up a mountain bike and then found my way over to cyclocross. In the process I visted a lot of races and tried to get information about racing, but I couldn’t find one place with all of the information on local races. That’s why I made this site. This site is about being a fan. I love going to local races. I like to race in some, and I like to watch some. I have been showing up at local crits for the last 10 years just enjoying the people, the sites, and the racing. I love the shenanigans of cyclocross and the comradery of mountain bike races. I hope to inspire more people to enjoy racing and possibly pick up their speed at their own pace. I started racing at 220 pounds and now I’m at 170. The racing has always been fun and I hope you join us at a local race in Sacramento. We have a great cycling community and you’re a part of it
