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!

Easy money? Keep in mind that were offering our Elites big money ($1000 Elite purse!) on both Saturday and Sunday. We have a few strong riders registering in these categories, but the odds are pretty good at this point! Less than 6 hours till reg closes. Get on it and win big!! ... See MoreSee Less

Is it rideable? We're putting up $100 to see. The first rider who makes it all the way to the top of the "FOC'n Hill" on their own steam while racing an event at Belltown CX, gets $100 bones or clams or whatever you call them (name the movie!).* The rider will also receive a 4-pack of Baby Kittens IPA from FOC. Think you can do it? We will see! Yes, if no one does it beforehand, the prize will still be available during the Fat Bike race. Hmmmmmm.... 🙂

One more reason to go register RIGHT NOW! www.bikereg.com/belltown-cx

*Fine Print: The winner must crest FOC'n Hill on their own power without putting down a foot or touching anything but their own bike (i.e., no putting your hand on someone or something to lean or rest). The winner must climb during a race, warm-up laps don't count. All other rules of good faith, good sportsmanship, and integrity apply. You know what we mean! 🙂

FOC = Fat Orange Cat Brew Co., one of our most favoritist sponsors!

Ladies and Gentlemen, we present the course for Belltown CX 2021!

In the words of the right Honorable AV:

THE HYPE IS REAL! 🤘🏻Belltown CX is this weekend, 2 days of epic cyclocross race action at our new venue, YMCA Camp Ingersoll in Portland, CT.

There have been a lot of questions about this new course and all I can say is it's rad! A fast start, a beach, plenty of off camber, a run-up in the middle of the woods, multiple barriers, a Pine grove...and add in the pizza truck, podium cow bells, Fat Orange Cat Brew Co. & Skratch Labs prizes, $2,000 in prize money, tons of high fives, and plenty of heckling.

What are you waiting for, get on it!

...and even if you're not a CXer, come down! Watch the races, eat some pizza, walk the 77 acre property, and enjoy a gorgeous Fall weekend.
