Stage 1 Cycling Team

and the Muddy Mayhem Junior Team

The Stage 1 Cycling Club is a registered non-profit cycling organization based in East Hampton, CT. We got our start over 30 years ago and have gone through many iterations and changes over the years. But one constant remains: Stage 1 is dedicated first and foremost to having fun, building a community of cyclists where all are welcome, and promoting the sport. We believe that pretty much everyone is happier on a bike.

We welcome and are composed of riders of all levels, from beginners to elite racers. If you don’t know how to ride a bike, we’ll teach you. If you’re a national level rider, we’ll support you and help make you better. Most of all, we want to ride with you. To join Stage 1, please contact us first through our Facebook page, or drop by AirLine Cycles in East Hampton, CT so we can meet with you, tell you more about our club, and learn more about you and your goals. The waiver form on this BikeReg page is the final step in the process, AND is also required for anyone interested in joinging in on our rides — regardless of club membership. It’s completely free!

Ok folks, just 6 more days to get er' done out on our fabulous Cockoponset race segment. I've attached screen shots of the latest standings, but if you have Strava premium, you can go here and aggregate the results as you like. I'm just listing the top 14 in each category, because that's what fits in my screenshot.
Note that if you have a kiddo in the juniors who's not showing up, try going into Strava and setting their age to 16.

Great to see so many people getting outside and riding!

Segmentalists... Anyone having issues with GPS drift on Segment 2 (Park Itt), it seems that the segment ends super close to Beaver Meadow and it is an area prone to GPS drift. You should exit Mottland and turn and go a decent way down Beaver Meadow. If you still have this problem, just crop your ride back to the actual end of the segment and it should remove any extra time. ... See MoreSee Less

Segment Champs: This evening we're experimenting to see if we can shorten the current Cockaponset segment by about 40 or so yards to give riders a little more cushion before running into Beaver Road. I will only make the change if it doesn't upset the current results. I don't want to upset the current results. If you happen to see a new segment pop up and disappear, don't pay any attention. We're just seeing what's possible for now. ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook a vert ramp!.......problem solved!!!

Ok, we investigated it and shortening the end would disrupt the standings. So, we'll stick with the present segment. One note from our own Anthony Vecca: If it's an issue riders can peel off left into the short grass stretch pull-off area on the side of Beaver Meadow Rd. That's what I did and it worked fine.
