Race Team Recruitment rides - October 22nd and 29th!!

The San Jose Bicycle Race Team is recruiting for new racers across all fields from juniors to masters, on both the Women's and Men's teams. We specialize in Junior and masters fields, but our elite group is growing as is our Women's team.

Come join us on Saturday October 29th at Mikes Bikes in Los Gatos at 9:00am for a nice bike ride. We'll ride at a conversational pace on the flats and a faster pace on the climbs (with regroups at the top). Here is the route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/17038489.

The Women's team will also hold a Women's specific recruitment ride on Saturday October 22nd at 8:45am at McKenzie Park located on Fremont Ave at Foothill/Springer. Ride will be 42 miles with approximately 4,200 ft of climbing. There may be an optional 'B' roll for newer riders (TBD).

Note: For Women that cannot make it to the Women's specific ride, please feel free to join us on the 29th!

If after the ride you are interested in joining the team please fill out an application here.

Riders looking to join the team must have 7 prior USAC races under their belt. Anyone that has not previously competed in a USA Cycling sanctioned race is encouraged to join the club first and race under team 'SJBC' before later joining the team.

See you there!

Road Race #1 - Epic ride in the rain!


We had a great ride today in the warm rain at Road Race #1. Congratulations to Andy and Marsha for going 1-2 !! They were just too fast for the 1/2/3's to catch!

A HUGE thank you to our volunteers who helped make a challenging environment doable. Thank you to Alan, Thomas, Victor, Peter, Brian, and Rob for driving the follow car.

See you next week at Criterium #2!

Winter Series Schedule for 2016 announced!!

We have great news for fans of the SJBC Winter Series!

For 2016, we are starting the Winter Series earlier in the season so that we can finish up before the Early Birds start. We are also incorporating our Vuelta de San Jose into the Winter Series prologue! What this means is that now the prologue will be a two part event. There will be a Merkx style ITT followed by a 2-lap road race! This should give our Winter Series coordinator more data for placing people into their appropriate categories. Yay!

Here is the currently planned schedule:

24 - clinic
25 - Prologue (was old Vuelta, now Merkx ITT and 2-lap RR )

2 - Crit #1
9 - ITT #1
16 - Road Race #1
23 - Crit #2
30 - Henry Coe Hill Climb

6 - Crit #3
13 - 4TTT
20 - Road Race #2
27 ** break for Thanksgiving **
