Cyclepaths/Wild Cherries Racing is back for the third year of racing and bicycle advocacy in 2010. Based out of Truckee, the team is presented by Cyclepaths Bike Shop and Wild Cherries Coffee House.

The team consists of amateur athletes competing in a variety of road and mountain bike racing events and triathlons. Athletes range in age from 20-something to 50-something, and in level of competition from racing categories 4 to 2. Most team members are from Truckee, but the team also includes riders from Reno and the San Francisco Bay Area.

So far in 2010, the team has recorded more than 30 top-10 finishes, including a number of victories. Team members serve as ambassadors for our sponsor companies, with shared beliefs and perspectives. Most importantly, team members serve as advocates for cycling in the community and#8212; teaching mountain biking skills at Northstar, hosting clinics on bike maintenance and safety, helping with local trail building/maintenance, and volunteering to promote bicycle safety and awareness.

The team hosts several informal rides throughout the summer in Truckee and extends an open invitation to anyone who would like to participate. Keep your eyes on the bulletin board at Wild Cherries for a team schedule of rides and races.

The teamand#8217;s headline sponsors, Cyclepaths and Wild Cherries, are staples of Truckee business.
