The 2015 Club of the Year applications have opened and we encourage you to nominate your club!
Each year, USA cycling awards three "Overall Club of the Year" designations as well as ten special awards focused on specific disciplines and niche clubs. These awards are designed to recognize clubs that have made exceptional efforts to develop programs and promote cycling. Past clubs have been involved in everything from junior rider development to hosting women’s cycling clinics.
Some, like the Northwest Cycling Club have programs that encourage riders to give back and volunteer in the community.
The selection committee will choose one winner for each division (I, II and III) and each special award (Junior, Interscholastic, Masters, Women, Best New Club, Track, Mountain Bike, Collegiate Varsity, Collegiate Club and Cyclo-cross). Clubs may only apply for one award. It is recommended that clubs start thinking about this at the beginning of the year and keep the awards in mind as they plan their programs and racing season.

Applications are due Monday, November 30, 2015 and winners will be announced on our website on December 15, 2015 so don’t put this opportunity off.
