At long last, I’m excited to announce the Aspen Cycling Club’s 2022 ACC Race Series Presented by Lift Vodka! We can’t wait to get back to bike racing in the Roaring Fork Valley, and are excited to also present several non-competitive events this season.
ACC Managing Director
ACC is excited to announce Kristen Heath as our new Managing Director! She has been involved in the club for several years as both a volunteer and Assistant Race Director last year. Kristen will be taking on the daily operations of the club, freeing up the board to focus more on fundraising and strategic priorities. Thanks to the support provided through our Matching Gift fundraising campaign (more on that later), the ACC is expanding its programming to include community-building events for cyclists of all levels, with the ultimate goal of providing riders with the skills, knowledge and the confidence to reach their cycling goals. That might mean a junior rider trying their first mini mountain bike race at Prince Creek, or a seasoned racer making their first podium at a competitive event, or simply learning how to change a flat tire at one of our bike mechanics workshops. Whatever your goals and experience level, we hope that you will join the ACC community this season!
ACC is excited to announce some new events
- Mini Mountain Bike Races for junior riders (open to youth riders entering 1-8 grade)
- June 25, 2022 – Gravel Gran Fondo with varying distances
In addition to bike racing, we are committed to our non-competitive event offerings, including Road and Mountain Bike skills clinics, group rides, women’s group rides, and other events aimed at building community and breaking down barriers to entry into the sport of cycling. See events for dates.
Now, onto the bike racing!
This season is starting similar to last year, since May weather is very unpredictable, and we have not scheduled any “rain dates” this year. If races are rained out this year, they will simply be canceled and not rescheduled.
Help us reach our fundraising goal!
We have just $1000 to go in order to meet our fundraising goal and secure a generous $30,000 Matching Gift before the season begins! Please consider donating here today. All junior cyclists race for free, and the community’s support means that every kid has the opportunity to participate. When you donate $500 or more, you’ll receive a full 2022 season membership to all races and ACC events in 2022.
Thank you, all, for your patience as we get the 2022 season up and running. We’ll see you out there soon!
ACC Board President
