Races are competitive events of various sorts. Multi-sport and BMX events are not listed in this Calendar. Sanctioned races are governed by the rules of a sanctioning body such as USA Cycling, American Bicycle Racing (ABR), or the National Off-Road Bicycling Association (NORBA). Those who wish to compete in sanctioned races must have racing licenses issued by the appropriate governing body; race-day licensing may be available. Citizen races are usually open to all comers (within age restrictions) and are a good way to give racing a try. See online references to types of races such as criteriums, road races, and mountain bike racing.
