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!

We'd like to send a huge congratulations out to Noah Couture for his 6th place finish in the Pro Open at the Maxxis ESC Stan's Enduro at Thunder Mountain this past weekend. Noah only has a few Pro races under his belt after recently stepping up from the Expert 15-18 class. With his bike handling skills, raw speed, and determination to claw his way onto the podium, the future is going to be very bright for this young rider! 💙💚

Fall is here, and so is another huge race weekend for the team!

Some of the gravity riders will be participating in the Maxxis Eastern States Cup Enduro & Downhill at Thunder Mountain Bike Park in Mass, while a few XC guys will be tackling the Vermont 50. A small group of the CX racers are attending Rochester Cyclocross in upstate New York, and the core of the CX crew will be racing Newtown here on home turf in CT on Sunday.

Best of luck to everyone, have fun out there!! 💙💚

Get after it Brooks, Kelli, Hudson, and David! Repping the blue & green on the big stage at the Rochester UCI CX event!! 💙💚🤘🏻

Don't forget about Tom Pease and me doing the VT50.

Love seeing this! Our team getting caught doing good things.. so proud of our junior squad! (I'm proud of you old fogeys too, of course, but seeing the kids jump so willingly in to help is pretty wonderful...) -BHCan you help out at this weekend's Newtown CX? It takes a village to make an event like this happen, but they are well worth the work that goes into them!

We are still in need of volunteers for both Saturday and Sunday, specifically with set-up, breakdown, and registration. Please consider signing up to help us for a few hours on one or both of the days. Any time you can give would be much appreciated.

Ha that ball came home with us 🤣

The last weekend of Summer looks to be a gorgeous one chock full of bicycle riding!

The Stage 1 Juniors practice takes place this afternoon at The Playground Trails, a few riders will be competing in the New Haven Grand Prix this evening, several members of the gravity crew are up at the Fox US Open at Killington for some DH and Dual Slalom action, and 20 racers will be hitting Tree House Brewing in Deerfield, Mass. on Sunday for a cyclocross event.

Wether you're cruising around for fun, or racing the clock, have fun out there this weekend! 💙💚
