Ride maps, Rider playlists, and many more resources to come....
A few weeks ago Crihs set up an open-corse Criterium here in SF. Sean Rivers shot some video of the event, and sent us this edit. Enjoy some night racing on your Tuesday morning!
We just restocked some goods at the shop including crew neck sweatshirts in Gray and black. Stay warm!

Let’s do this. All bikes welcome, but hoping to get a group of track bikes out to Sierra Point on steep gears, and run laps as training for Red Hook. Usually there is another group that heads to the dirt. As always, 7:45AM Coffee, and out the door at 8AM. No Daylight Savings excuses. Get yours!
We are entering the second full month of the 2013 road season, and Walton has come out swinging. Starting as a category 5 in Mid January of this year, he quickly has worked up to a Cat3, and has his sights set on the 2’s within a few weeks. He should be on form for Red Hook in a few weeks. Keep an eye out! Photo: R. Mariano
