2017 Race Reimbursement Program

The Race Reimbursement Program (RRP) aims to reimburse a portion of race entry fees for club members who race in USA Cycling and/or USAT sanctioned races. 

The goals of RRP are to:

  • Promote the sport of cycling by encouraging club members to enter races and reach their racing goals.
  • Promote the Bicycle Sport Shop Cycling Club, its sponsors, and the sport of bicycle racing by wearing the club jersey in races and on training rides.

Club members must complete and submit the RRP application by quarter’s deadline in order to be considered for reimbursement.
