Just a reminder that membership sales and renewals for USA Cycling are now open.
A portion of your membership purchase goes towards supporting your local association, allowing us to continue our efforts in the local cycling community, growing great grassroots events, providing networking for fellow local riders, and supporting clubs in the area.
As part of the improvements USA Cycling is working on, they’ve launched 2017 membership purchases as the first phase of their new technology platform.
Check out this how-to guide for easy instructions on how to use the new platform.

The first Cookie Cross Series ended at The Fast and The Furriest Cyclocross Race. Final series standings are at http://kscycling.org/results/. Congratulations to all Cookie Cross participants! Thank you to Dr. Melissa Kusiak of Family Dental Co. for sponsoring Cookie Cross.
Just wanted to let everyone know that at the 360 Cup race USADA was present and performed random drug testing on six participants.
This is part of USAC’s RaceClean program where Local Associations submit races from each region to be placed in a pool for them to choose from. 360 Cup was one of the CX races we submitted for them to consider.
I want to thank the 360 Team for being equipped to handle the testing on top of everything else they were doing yesterday to put on a great event!
Here is a link from USA Cycling on information regarding the RaceClean program
In response to the high number of racers in Cookie Cross, prizes have been extended to fifth place! Next Cookie Cross race is this Sunday November 20 at 360 Cup in Lawrence. Final race of the series is The Fast and The Furriest November 27 in Kansas City, Kansas. Series prizes will be awarded at The Fast and The Furriest! Current series standings are posted at http://kscycling.org/results/.
