The club team is for those women who are willing to push their limits in a more casual setting, without the pressure of having to race; Though we encourage you to dabble in the race scene if you so choose. We are passionate about getting as many women out on bikes as possible. We want you to feel knowledgeable and prepared for the trails and roads as well as the events in our community. By becoming a club team member of MT Alpha Cycling, you will have access to opportunities that further these motives.
As a club member, you're encouraged to: race at least one (1) race and volunteer at at least two (2) times a season. This requirement can be met through the MTB Missoula Wednesday night races, the skills clinic, trail-dig days or with the MT Alpha Junior program.
If you sign up for the Club Team, and end up meeting the race team requirements at the end of the season (6+ races and volunteering; save your race receipts and submit for reimbursement if so!), you will be placed on the Race Team and receive Race Team benefits.
Club Team Benefits include: - Weekly group rides - Wednesday nights ** (email will be sent to those signed up for the club team) - Teammates at local bike races - Training programs with access to the members shared calendar - Option to buy our custom-designed MT Alpha kit - Camaraderie with an awesome group of women!
**Wednesday club rides - All MT Alpha Cycling members (race/club) are encouraged to attend. It is a no drop, intermediate paced, casual ride where the entire team can chat and get to know one another. We will have monthly socials after a ride to encourage full team camaraderie and bonding. Club members are welcome to attend the Race Teams Monday ride; However, it will be a hard, interval-type, training ride, so expect a drop ride and hard effort.
