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 (on- and off-road), American Bicycle Racing (ABR), or North American Cycle Sport (NACS). 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. Spectators are welcome. See online references to types of races such as criteriums, road races, and mountain bike racing. Here are a few of the bicycle racing events taking place this year….
