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!

Please join me in a long overdue welcome of André Breton to the Stage 1 family! In his first year racing in the Men's Pro XC Category (2020), he posted top-20 finishes at three high-profile races including the USA Pro Cycling (XCM) Telluride 100. In 2021, at his season opener, he finished 7th in the solo, open male category at 12 Hours of Mesa Verde in Cortez, Colorado. He's also scored a pile of 40-49 age class wins at all the big Colorado area endurance races, and overall wins at the Durango Dirty Century and the Salida Big Friggin Loop. This past weekend found him coming in the top 20 overall and 2nd for his age group at the Silver Rush 50 miler (with over 6500 feet of climbing!).

When not racing, André owns and operates a successful software development company, and tours extensively by bicycle, totalling close to 14,000 miles and 700,000 feet of elevation (that's 24 times up Mount Everest from sea-level) in Europe and North America. He details his tours and his lifestyle coaching background at www.andrebretoncycling.com.

Andre is primarily West Coast-based, so we'll have to ride vicariously with him through Strava and beyond for now, but he'll be travelling extensively this year, so hopefully we'll see him back East soon. Welcome!

Welcome!!!

Fantastic…….where in the west coast? Heading to San Mateo in august for company meeting

Welcome Andre!!

I'm grateful for all the kudos and the comments, and I'm feeling very good about being part of Stage 1 Racing! I want to thank Brian Holdt and Adam Schwindt for making this opportunity possible, for their generosity and more. I'll be hoping to meet some of you later this summer when I ride across New England and perhaps even CT. Please connect to me on Strava (look for 'andre breton cycling') and let me know if you're close by when I'm on that tour. Rubber side down and good luck at the race venues for what remains of the 2021 season!

Fantastic, I am the living proof of André Breton as a lifestyle coach. A great asset to the team!!

Welcome Andre. I guess I should get off of Zwift...
