    The lost productivity caused by the Racing Forum may soon cost me my job. Alas.

    here's all you need to know:

    do some group rides.

    buy a license.

    do a race.

    that is all.

    Thanks. Where do you acquire a license? And do you have to meet certain requirements? Thanks again.

    Check the usacycling website for license info. You can get a one day license at sanctioned events. As far as requirements...you can't be an axe murderer. Or, at least, not a convicted axe murderer.

    Well, there are some requirements like helmets, removing anything that can fall off your bike (like clip-on fenders), no aero bars in a RR or crit, plain jearsy if your not on a team, number placement, etc. You can download the rule book at the USA Cycling site if you want to read all of them...but it's mostly common sense/courtesy stuff... Getting hooked up with a racing club is prob. the best way to go.

    Even though I have not raced I come here first because this is wear the cycling warriors meet. I like a group that collectively is goal oriented.
