RFHavens 0 5687

BE THE BEST OF 2019

Each year, USA Cycling awards three "Overall Club of the Year" designations and ten special awards. USA Cycling's "Club of the Year" awards are designed to recognize USA Cycling clubs that have made exceptional efforts to develop programs and promote all aspects of competitive cycling.

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.

CCA Annual Meeting!

RFHavens 0 667

Attention all CCA/USAC Sanctioned Clubs:

Greetings All,

Happy New Year!!! It’s that time of year when we need to elect new Board members, finalize the road racing calendar, and select championship events. To that end, the annual CCA planning meeting will be held on January 25, 2020 at the Marriott Courtyard located in Statesville, NC. The address is 1530 Cinema Drive Statesville, NC 28625 and the phone is 704-768-2400. The meeting will begin at 9:00 am. I encourage all clubs to send a representative to the meeting. Participation is essential, especially given the CCA board elections. While it has been an honor and a privilege to serve as your CCA President for the past 10+ years, and Board Secretary & Treasurer before that, it is well past time for someone else to take the reins. A new decade warrants a fresh perspective and innovative ideas. My tenure on the Board was never intended to last quite this long. Therefore, we need willing volunteers to offer themselves up for service on the Board. This is a great opportunity to give back to the sport that we all love in a positive and impactful manner.

Please feel free to contact me, or any of the current Board members, with questions or concerns.

SAFESPORT Resources for LA & Clubs

USA Cycling is committed to creating a safe and positive environment for its participants’ physical, emotional, and social development and to ensuring it promotes an environment free from misconduct and abuse. To achieve this, USA Cycling’s SafeSport Program went into effect in January 2014. Today, the Program consists of three core components: (1) Education, (2) Policies (including Criminal Background Checks), and (3) Response and Resolution.  In 2017, the U.S. Center for SafeSport (“The Center”) was launched and it has exclusive jurisdiction over sexual misconduct matters and may exercise discretionary jurisdiction over other misconduct.  The Center also promulgates rules and policies around training requirements and misconduct.  USA Cycling works closely with The Center to educate our membership, create policies that protect our members from misconduct and abuse and respond to and resolve allegations of misconduct when they arise.

Club Tool Kit

RFHavens 0 785

What’s so great about being part of a cycling club? Community.  Advocacy.  Social life. Competition. Skills. Fun. Giving back to your tribe.  There are many reasons to join an existing cycling club - or start your own.  Our cycling club listing can help you find the Club that is right for you.

For years, not only were clubs host to countless weeknight and weekend organized rides but they were THE place for beginners to learn basic riding (and racing) skills from more experienced riders  - skills that had been passed down to them by the generations of riders who came before. Clubs have been the keepers of that historical knowledge - how to ride safely in a group, how to race, how put on a race and much more.  They’ve also been key organizers in their communities - voices for safer streets, bike lanes and cyclists’ rights.

Many clubs have it in their mission statements to be welcoming to ALL riders.  Others have a strict racing focus.  Regardless of the focus, broadly speaking all clubs are interested in the social aspects of the sport and making riding safer and more fun for everybody. What follows is a tool kit for clubs that features information for teaching skills for riding, skills for racing and much more that will make everybody safer, more skilled and promote having fun on the bike.

2020 USA Cycling Officials and Technical Membership Renewals

As we close out 2019, our IT department has been hard at work creating some changes with our officiating license renewals.  As you can see from the title of this email, it references “Technical Memberships”.  Officials, Coaches, Mechanics, UCI Support (DS, Team Assistants, Soigneurs, Drivers, etc.) as well as Domestic Drive are part of the “technical licensee” group.

Updates and Info

If you have any suggestions, please let Robert know. Try to be resonably specific if you can as it helps in the long run. Remember to update your links for the CCA Offcial website to carolinascycling.org. We have setup web forwarding from our old site address.

We are constantly looking to make improvements to this website, from how we manage information dislay to maintenance. Now that the CCA Annual meeting is complete and the base calendar set, we are building the events calendar with many new features. We have all events from that list added. Some of the event info is basic until either the promoter provides it to me (Robert) or I pull it from the USA Cycling website once you start the permit process there. We do ask that you information always include the name and date(s) of your event. For the maps integration, we ask that you include an accurate address to the staging site or parking area for your event(s). Also new, is the ability for us to add some details to your event listing. This should be in plain text format and be reasonable length (i.e. not all the info from your flyer) but maybe some good info that is not on your flyer.
