I want to start a cycling team for my daughters all girl school in upper CT. I know next to nothing about the sport other than getting hooked last summer and riding frequently the loop in the park. I am willing to underwrite the entire costs of such a venture including:

1.Buying all Bikes and equipment
2. Hiring a coach
3. Buying the vans, chase car, and fix it truck
4. Food and lodging

Except I don't know what the structure, training, and costs are of such a venture. Would anyone care to educucate me or link me to a site. I would be indebted.

What a cool dad!

I wish I went to that high school. Nice riding in northern CT too.

I'm sure someone in the club will be able to point you in the right direction. Good luck!

If you're looking to set up a girls' racing team, look up the Century Road Club Association. CRCA is the region's largest dedicated-racing club, and can probably refer you to local associations/race promoters in CT. Their Vice President of Rider Development, Craig Cook, is currently immersed in shepherding a (boys') junior team based out of Washington Heights. He's a tremendous resource, and worth seeking a conversation.
