Bear Valley Bikes is a team that includes a Pro Cross Country race team as well as racers at all other levels. We also have many club members who do not compete, but love to join us for rides and fun events. The race teams compete in cross country, endurance, enduro, road racing, cyclocross and other events like Gran Fondos. All together, we have over 300 riders. The race team travels throughout the Western United States and competes in everything from UCI races to Gran Fondos!
Founded in 1995, we currently have around 300 club and team members. Some of the bigger events our team members have competed in include: World Mountain Bike Championships, USA Cycling National Championships, Kenda Cup West Series, California State Championships, Rim Nordic Series Championships, The Race Across America, Peak to Peak, and Tour of California. There are also countless other races, tours, Gran Fondos and events that we are a part of, which you will see from our Team Race Schedule. For the past 7 years at the California State Championships, our Men, Women, Juniors and Vets have all placed within the top 3. As a group, we have been the most dominant team over the last decade at the Rim Nordic Race Series, winning the team title 9 consecutive years. For 2017, we aspire to continue our reign at Rim Nordic, and also to dominate the California State Championships, while also supporting our pros at the State and National level. We may even have some Pros racing at World Cups!
Our goal is to provide people with an encouraging, family-like team who all share a passion for cycling, well-being, and great times!
