Exciting News! Spring has Sprung
, or at least it feels like it has with the sudden warm days. Surely Mother Nature will chill us out again, but in the mean time let’s ride!
We are SO excited about for Spring 2017 line up of Cycling Programs for Youth and Adult! Following is a brief tid-bit on each program. We are also thrilled to have Assistant Coach Liam back for 2017. Liam is in the process of becoming certified with USA Cycling as a coach and will also be both our team mechanic at practices as well as our continued liaison with our main team sponsor, Dave’s Cycles. Thanks Dave’s Cycles! In addition to Liam, we welcome professional mountain biking coach Jobson to our ranks who is also in the process of becoming certified as a coach with USA Cycling. With three USA Cycling Certified Coaches and our Team Communications Director Susie Charlton and Team Race Director Paulina Sabbagh, we are set for an incredible 2017! The administrative staff at the OGRCC is handling administration and doing a fantastic job! Let’s go OGRCC Cycling!!
