Volunteering Makes You Happy!

It’s a simple fact that bike races run on volunteers. We need your help…

Specifically, the Bazaar Road Race needs volunteers. Road races not your thing? Please volunteer. You team needs to promote an event? Please volunteer. You simply want to ensure the future of bike racing? Please volunteer. You want to lower stress levels and feel happier? Please volunteer.

A recent study published in the Journal of Happiness Studies found that people who volunteer are happier than those who do not. Every two years from 1996 to 2014, researchers took data from nearly 70,000 research participants about their volunteering habits, mental health, levels of stress, and daily mood.

Contact Bazaar race promoter John Fairbanks by email johnarlenef@gmail.com to volunteer for Bazaar on Sunday April 16.

Cycling Team Curious?

Whether you’re a brand new racer or a seasoned competitor there’s no requirement to join a local team.  This is what is referred to as racing ‘unattached’. However, there are often benefits to being on a squad including, but not limited to:  a sense of community; teammates to travel and race with; product discounts (depending on the team structure) and; super cool clothing, to name a few.

Kansas Mourns Loss of Long Time USAC Official Robert Helfrich

Long time USACycling race official and 2022 KCA Hall of Fame inductee Robert Helfrich, passed away January 19, 2023.  The Kansas Cycling Association would like to extend our deepest sympathies to his family and our gratitude for his contributions to the Kansas cycling community.

The 2022 Season Comes to a Close

The face of amateur bike racing was indelibly changed by the pandemic and ripples from the 2020 lockdown continue to affect many aspects of it.  A number of USACycling sanctioned events have faded into the periphery as gravel rose to fill the void and, with it, many longtime running local events have either suffered lower turnouts or have withered away.

There were plenty of bright spots, however, as many longtime events returned: The Spring Fling, Perry Dam, Jesse Blancarte, Bazaar, Wednesday Night Worlds, Joules CX, the 360 Cup, Boulevard CX and the Kansas Grass Track.  Several somewhat newer events also occurred: A Very Peculiar Criterium, the John Brown TT Series, Joules MTB and Meatball CX. Even with lower than normal turnouts, state championship events were held in Road, Track, Criterium and Cyclocross. (See this page for a full listing of 2022 results).

In 2022, we also honored three inductees into the Kansas Cycling Hall of Fame: Teresa Jarzemkoski, Mark Thomas and, posthumously, Paul Lichtenauer. Each offered a few words with Jon-Paul Shores honoring Mr. Lichtenauer and Paul’s longtime partner, Kim Larsen, accepting the award on his behalf. (Special thanks to Jesse Kadekawa Miguel for capturing the award photos).

KCA Calendar Coordinator Sam Loring is already working with promoters to design a robust road season in 2023. Thanks to all who raced, promoted, sponsored, supported, volunteered and officiated for making this season possible.


Ride On and Happy Holidays,

The Kansas Cycling Association Board
