2013 A-SIG

Saturday, March 2, 2013 - 9:00am


Please note that registration is closed and new participants are no longer being accepted.

The A-SIG is a 12-ride series designed to remove the mystique from becoming an “A” rider. Your ride leaders are dedicated to helping you achieve a new level of cycling ability. This is done gradually, taking you from a 40-mile spin into New Jersey all the way to a challenging 100-mile “century” ride. We’ll climb many of the best known hills in the area, and speed our way down 9W in tight, cooperative pacelines.  Along the way, you’ll pick up new skills in group riding, climbing techniques, paceline riding, and much more! All while bringing yourself to peak physical condition. Plus you’ll not only come away with new skills, you’ll make new friends too!

The A-SIG leaders bring a wealth of cycling knowledge and experience to the plate. All participants are expected to listen and accept coaching and criticism from the leaders. Through the entire series, the leaders will give suggestions on safety, bike fit, bike handling and training techniques. The leaders will also make suggestions on organizing and leading club rides. At the end of the SIG, each participant is expected to give back to the club and lead at least one club ride in 2013.

The A-SIG begins on Saturday, March 2nd and ends on Saturday, May 18th. We ride every Saturday, with Sundays as a rain date.

Early in the season, when the rides are shorter, you may get home early. However, as the length of the rides increase, we may not get home until very late in the afternoon. Remember that flats and other mechanical issues on the ride will delay us even further. Basically, we own your Saturdays. Rest assured however, the investment is well worth it.

On-line registration begins on February 13th. You must be a member of the New York Cycle Club in order to register for the SIG.

The A-SIG is a very popular program and space is limited. We will make every effort to accommodate as many as we can, but we recommend that you register as soon as you are able.
