Tuesday Night Rides

Tuesday Night Rides are now taking place at 6pm, leaving from Harper's Cycling. You will need weather appropriate clothing and front and rear lighting, as most of the rides are in the dark.

In the past the rides have traveled across many city streets and trails, and some residential backyards.

Considering it is a Tuesday Training Ride, the pace usually pics up at certain points, to get some interval and cardio work, however no one is ever dropped, as we aren't racing to any specific location, just out having fun, staying in shape.


Melon City Racing Team came in tenth out of 23 teams in this years Championships Team of the Year.

Bill Ford had two bronzes in the roller race state championship events (Cat 4 and Masters 40+).

Chad Bishop had one gold in the state time trial event and one bronze in the state cyclocross event. (Master 30+ and Cat 4).

Movie Night

Movie Night - March 14th

6:30 pm Missippi Brew

We will be showing a movie the evening of Tuesday-March 14 at The Brew. They now have a back room that we will have reserved. The movie runs almost 2 hours and I would like to start it at 6:30. Come around 6:00 if you would like to order food and they can get your orders filled before we start the movie.

The movie is The Tour Baby by Scott Coady and since it's release it has become a cycling classic. Here are a couple of quotes about this film.
