Our goal and what we do!
We’ve built a strong foundation which will enable our Team to grow and grow for years to come. Team Revolutions was developed with a few simple ideas in mind. We wanted a team that:
- Supports riders of all levels from beginners to racers,
roadies, triathletes, and MTBr’s
- Helps riders meet one another
- Raises money and awareness for great charities
- Supports our sponsors and local businesses
- Builds a strong cycling advocacy program
To say we were successful in reaching these goals is an understatement!
We also continue to build strong relationships with our local bike shops and cycling related professionals, improving our website making it more interactive for our riders, MTB trail maintenance, fundraising, and offering several training groups just to name a few. We’re here to help riders get where they want to go!

News regarding our upcoming 2013 season!
Team Revolutions was designed, and has been run with a few simple ideas in mind. We wanted to bring riders together of all levels and experience in a “no pressure,” fun atmosphere. We have enough stress in life... this is about riding your bike, having fun, and meeting great people. We wanted a “Team” members could be proud to call their own. We wanted a cool looking uniform that showed off our great sponsors, and we wanted to promote our local small businesses through these sponsorships. Quite simply, we wanted a “win-win” for everyone! I think we’ve been successful in meeting these goals over the past 5 years.
Over the last few months Team leadership has been considering a variety of ideas to help refocus our team. The Team leadership is comprised of several folks who love this team just as much as I do, and help deliberate our direction. We’ve put together several changes for the 2013 season.
One of the significant changes for 2013 is to limit our Team membership. The Team has grown so quickly over our first 5 seasons, it’s become increasingly difficult to maintain the core ideas that formed and lead this Team. The “vibe” we have is still here ‘big time’, but it’s becoming tough to maintain it, and sometimes even difficult to feel when riding. I’m sure those of you who have been on the team of a few years understand what I’m trying to convey. Losing the Team “vibe” is a scary prospect to me, and I can’t let that happen. I’ve been involved in cycling clubs for a long time and seen many teams come and go. One thing for sure, Team Revs will be here for a long, long time, but for that to happen every decision I make as the Team leader needs to be planned and calculated. That’s just part of the ‘deal’.
The decision to limit our membership has not been an easy one to make, but in my view it has to be done to ensure the continuation and growth of the team. By growth, I’m not referring to the number of members, but rather to the quality of the experience, and the core “vibe” of Team Revolutions. We all want to be part of something, and I want each member to feel that they are part of something special. I'm serious about this. Many of us realize this is a special group of folks. We want it to be your team. We want you to be proud to be part of Team Revs.
The Team leadership and I have made this final decision for the direction of Team Revs 2013.
Therefore, for the 2013 season ONLY, registration will be limited to current 2012 members, and to previous members of Team Revs from our past 5 seasons. We will not be taking on new members.
We need to take ONE season and really improve and build up the quality of our team with the members who already know what we’re all about. Fortunately, there are many other clubs in the area now and there are plenty of places where folks can ride with other groups. More cycling clubs the better! More people on bikes the better! I’m fully aware this may anger people in the short term, but for the long term health of Team Revolutions, and for those who run it, it’s absolutely necessary.
I sincerely appreciate your understanding and look forward to opening the team in 2014. Please enter your email below and I'll keep you updated regarding any registration opportunities.
