2011 SIG A-19

Saturday, March 5, 2011 - 10:00am


The 2011 A-19 SIG

REGISTRATION CLOSED: A-19 SIG registration is now closed for 2011. See you on the road. There are lots of NYCC rides of all speeds for you to participate all all spring and summer. Perhaps join us next year for the SIG.

The A-19 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 jaunt into New Jersey all the way to a 100-mile century ride featuring three classic climbs. Along the way, you will pick up new skills in group riding, climbing techniques, and paceline riding, all while bringing yourself to peak physical condition. You not only come away with new skills, you’ll make new friends too!
The A-19 SIG leaders bring a wealth of cycling knowledge and experience to the plate. All participants are expected to listen and accept coaching and constructive criticism from the leaders. Through the entire series, the leaders will give suggestions on safety, bike fit, bike handling and training techniques. They 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 2011.
The A-19 SIG begins on Saturday, March 5th and ends on Saturday, May 21st.
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.
Online registration begins on February 1st.
You must be a member of the New York Cycle Club in order to register for the SIG. The A-19 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.
