2017 Membership Is Open

Are you a local cyclist that is interested in stepping you game up? ABRT is a group of accomplished riders who train and race together throughout the Mid Atlantic region (MABRA) and are always looking for cyclists who want to improve their group skills and compete in cycling events, such as road races, time trials, cyclocross races and local grand fondos. While we are a racing team, racing is not mandatory and we do have a number of members who like to train to keep at top form and enjoy the competitive environment of group rides. We also enjoy various after ride social events and non-competitive rides at the end of the season.

“ABRT has been a great experience for me. I joined in 2007 after riding recreationally for many years because I wanted to ride with racing cyclists so I could get faster and learn about group riding and racing. Yes, I got dropped a lot on the Saturday ride initially, but the ABRT members and the group rides taught me how be smart about conserving energy, riding smart in a group and racing tactics. I have matured greatly as a cyclist in the years since thanks to my association with ABRT. I’ve also met and ridden with some awesome people. It’s been such a great experience, not only am I the president, but I’m also a member.”

–Alex Pline, ABRT President

AACX Results

The 2016 edition of AACX at South River Farm was  a great success. We had nearly perfect weather and some new challenging feature to the course, notably the new “run up” that that challenged people to ride it successfully. Thanks to all who came out for the race and spread the word about the more interesting course for next year. Each year we make it even better. Full results with lap times from 2016 AACX Results. A big thanks to Race Director Iain Banks who worked tirelessly to put on the race. Also thanks to our partner Anne Arundel County Recreation and Parks for the use of the park and the help with course grooming – everyone needs access to a backhoe! – we couldn’t do it without them.

Ride or Run, that is the question of the day!
