Introducing West Coast Racing!
In 2007 Krebs Cycle Club and West Coast Mountain Biking Club were brought together to offer a broad collection of opportunities to its members both on and off the bike. The amalgamated club was renamed West Coast Racing to reflect the diverse history and interests of both original clubs. Our membership draws from many areas of the lower mainland, and includes a wide variety of personalities and skill levels from riders still finding their pedaling legs, to hardened North Shore freeriders, to accomplished racers in road, dirt, and multisport competition.
Please visit our new web site www.westcoastracing.ca to learn more, or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org . Look for West Coast Racing events in the cycling community in the coming months. Opportunities for title and secondary sponsors of the race team and club are available.
