Message from the NYSBRA President

Did you know that every rider, club, and race director resident in NY is automatically a member of NYSBRA? 

Did you know that membership is totally FREE?  That is right- NYSBRA doesn’t cost you one single penny!

Did you know that you don’t have to be a member if you don’t want to be? (I just don’t know why you wouldn’t want to be part of NYSBRA!)

NYSBRA grows competitive cycling in New York by returning most of our revenue to you through NYSBRA’s generous grant program. As a member of NYSBRA, you are all eligible for all of that! In fact, NYSBRA supports almost every race in NY with $140-$300 in grants and NY’s racing juniors with up to $100 each every year!  However, to continue supporting local races and juniors we need more sponsors.  Please contact me if you are willing to help grow the sport we all love!




2018 NYS Crit Champions Crowned!

From all accounts the race was a tremendous success, setting the all-time record of registrants at 784 racers! There was also a great turnout for the Pre-race Clinic, which was supported by a NYSBRA Mission Grant.
