About R.A.C.E. - Rodney's Amateur Cycling Events
R.A.C.E. is an all-inclusive, always free, almost daily bike racing organization located in Chico, California.
Interested in bicycle racing? We have multiple options for everyone. Our races come in many flavors for different levels of intensity & different types of riders. If you are brand-new to racing, you might want to try the "C" group race. Intermediate to advanced riders normally race in the "B" group. If you are a veteran racer, Category 1 or Pro, then you should definitely join our "A" group at the races. We also have Junior racing for kids 15 and younger.
Our races come in different types. Group-start races include the Criteriums, Mountain Bike Races and the Road Races. Our solo-start races are the Flat Time Trials and the Hill Climb Time Trials. Occasionally there will be races that don't fall into either category, these are fun and challenging races created by the Race Director (Rodney Cox).
Points are awarded for almost all the races. These points will be calculated and displayed on our website. Your racing profile will keep track of your racing history. Visit our website after a race and see how you did - www.RaceChico.com!
For racers who come on a regular-basis, the points that are awarded will also go towards total points in a series. A series is any collection of races. Each series will have an overall winner in each rider category. Come to as many races as you can and you may find yourself the overall winner!
Welcome to R.A.C.E. - we hope to see you out there. Stay safe and ride!
