To qualify for the RAC the following requirements must be completed:
Required Meetings for Riders, Parents, and Chase
Training for the RAC is a huge commitment. You are expected to attend our group training rides every weekend. If you absolutely cannot attend a ride, you are expected to complete a ride of similar difficulty (distance and hills) on your own that week.
You must participate in at least one official RAC training ride per calendar month. You should really ride with us every weekend though . . . we're that fun!
Please arrive 15 minutes early.
Make sure your water bottles and/or CamelBaks are full.
5th graders need to carry their own water.
Don't forget sunscreen!
Bring one spare inner tube for each bike (and make sure it's the right size).
You must ride at least 350 training miles before the RAC begins. This is really the bare minimum. You'll be a lot happier if you train more. The 56 Bike Path isn't very exciting, but it's a good safe option if you want to get a quick ride in. Up and down the full length between Black Mountain Road and the end is 16 miles with some pretty good hills. Click here to see the route.
One Safety Fun ride (we offer 4).
Two Escondido Hill Rides (we offer 8 Escondido Rides). Attend all 8 and that's 240 miles right there! Set a new record!
