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

A shameless plug for our sponsor Parvilla Cycle & Multisport, but it’s all true. The Baltimore Sun has a nice writeup about the store and the unique fitting services that Stu Waring offers that set the store apart:
It’s Waring and this back area [fitting studio] that has made Parvilla Cycle & Multisport a premier bike shop on the East Coast. After just four years in operation, the Edgewater store has been ranked one of the top 50 bike shops in the country by Active Times and was one of six nominated for best pro road shop in the nation by Interbike Awards.
