Since 2008, Cascade Bicycle Club’s High Performance Cycling Team (HPC) has occupied a special niche within Seattle’s cycling community. The team appeals to riders who are interested in developing their fitness and skills with a focus on group riding skills. HPC is a team for cyclists who have a desire to become fitter, faster cyclists without a focus on racing. High Performance Cycling is well-regarded as a team that rides hard while practicing safe group-riding skills.
HPC is a perfect fit for riders who are:
Committed to improving their fitness and cycling skills and who want to ride with experienced cyclists
Comfortable with, or desire to master pace line and group riding techniques
Looking for compatible cycling buddies who regularly do long, scenic, challenging rides
Able to or desire to ride at 18 mph or faster
Capable of riding over 50 miles
HPC has over 120 adult members with a wide age range who live throughout the Puget Sound area. HPC members target challenging event rides including the Chelan Century, Flying Wheels, STP in one day, RAMROD, and the High Pass Challenge. The pace of the team’s weekly rides ranges from 18 to 23+ mph. Distances vary from 30 to 100+ miles.
For 2016 there are no team dues. Membership in the Cascade Bicycle Club is required and members must purchase a team jersey (available at Center Cycle) to wear on group rides. The team periodically hosts a “Meet The Team Ride” starting from Center Cycle. This ride is done at a social pace of 16-18 mph. This gives riders a chance to get to know the team and ask questions. See “Rides and Events” or Daily Rides at cascade.org for specific dates and times. To learn more about HPC go to: http://www.cascade.org/high-performance-cycling
