    Getting Started

    I've decided that I want to start racing. I've got the bike and the strong legs, but what do I do next? How do I find races in the Boston area? What lisenses do I need?

    I think you can still buy a USCF license for $30, which is good until the end of December.

    You can buy a 2006 USCF license starting today that is good from 11/1/2005 through 12/31/2006.
    The license is $60 (at least that's how much mine cost at usacycling.org)
