Our mission is to open the road cycling community to more people by providing access to bikes and training. While we believe even those who can afford to drop mints on the newest gear would often be equally served by riding up some gradients, we also believe hard work and commitment should be rewarded, so in partnership with Ostroy clothing company, we look for riders who demonstrate commitment with the tools they have, and offer support with bikes and equipment.
The Ride Up Grades Road Racing scholarship, open to applications in the summer, was created to give young people the tools and support to race road bikes. Winning riders are given a new race-ready road bike, helmet, computer, and shoes from Trek. Ride Up Grades provides continuous support with team placement and training.
