Team Cucina Fresca / Team Rides

Team Rides

Seattle Super Squadra Cycling Team has been going strong for 15 years.  And we are heading into our 8th year with Cucina Fresca as the title sponsor.  We have over 50 members participating in all cycling disciplines.  As a team we are committed to working together, racing hard, and having fun. Our diverse roster fosters a rich level of growth and cycling development. For 2015-2016 we are looking to bring on strong racers of any category or gender, new or experienced. We want people to train AND race with.  We emphasize racing and the team aspect of the sport not racing as an individual.

During the off-season October through February, Team Cucina Fresca meets each Saturday for a team ride, starting at 9:00am for coffee and feet in the pedals at 9:30am sharp. During the fall and middle winter, these rides are moderately paced to build up "base" miles. As the racing season approaches, the rides become more competitive as members begin to focus on fitness and racing skills. We will generally have an 'A' group (faster and longer) and a 'B' group (shorter and not as fast). Anyone is welcome to attend our team rides. We just request you are courteous on the road, fit & self sufficient,  wear a helmet,  and have pack riding skills. Bring an extra tube, air, and multi tool in case you need it.  When it is wet we require full fenders and long buddy flaps to be considerate of your fellow riders.

We will rotate through four different meeting spots around Lake Washington. The routes will have a fixed starting point each time so you'll get to know the area after a couple of rides and can opt out accordingly. NOTE, we have standing routes posted, but our ride leaders may change the routes at thier discretion based on weather or other reasons.

For 2017-2018 we are looking to bring on strong racers of any category or gender, new or experienced. We want people to train and RACE with.
