2023 Bluff City Training Team Registration

Training Team Registration Open through April 30

BCB Registration Opens May 1

Do you have goals to improve your bike riding skills and endurance? Would you like to achieve a new personal record for your longest ride? Are you interested in meeting a bunch of people who share your goals and want to pursue them with you?

The Bluff City Training Team will elevate your riding skills to new levels of endurance and enjoyment. Whether you are new and dream of riding 40 miles, seeking to ride 62 miles (100 kilometers) or looking to top the 100 mile mark our team will help you find success.

Your experience with the Bluff City Training Team will fuel your passion, desire, and dedication for riding and ensures that you have the skills to ride safely in a team environment. Your fellow team members will give you encouragement, support and, if desired, challenge you to reach for the next level.

2023 marks our 12th year, and we have helped more than 600 riders train for a long distance ride of up to 100 miles. If you can ride your bike, you can train to do a 40 mile, 62 mile (100 kilometers), or 100 mile ride.

Team members are cyclists of varying backgrounds and abilities, including many who are new to the sport. We encourage cyclists of all abilities to train with us, from the fast and the experienced to those wanting to join a group ride for the first time.

Rides are scheduled weekly on Saturdays with 21 rides. Every two weeks, the ride distance is increased by 5 miles.

One feature of the Bluff City Training Team that makes us different is our whole approach to helping cyclists improve their abilities. As a Training Team member, you will have access to resources to help you improve and become a better cyclist with seminars focused on bike maintenance, cycling basics, hydration, nutrition, stretching, and more! In addition, our training rides are supported with support and gear stops (SAGs). As a volunteer organization, support for each other includes supporting a SAG during the ride season. At the start of the season, you will be able to select the SAG date that works best for you and the resources to host a successful SAG during the season will be provided.

Throughout the year, we will host additional opportunities to socialize with fellow team members outside of the weekly team ride. A schedule of events and additional ride options to keep you motivated during the week will be provided. A number of groups will be coordinated during the week with the MHBC Weekly Group Rides.

Come and join us on the road! We can’t wait to meet you.


For $199 (plus tax), you receive the following:
· Bluff City Training Team Bike Jersey
· Bluff City Training Team T-shirt
· 21 Training Rides with SAG Support
· Training Advice and Seminars
· Social events on non-riding days
