A note from former GVCC G2/Junior Abbie Sullivan:

A note from former GVCC G2/Junior Abbie Sullivan:

“There is a bike club on campus, but mainly for mountain biking. Five of us decided to make an official Clarkson road cycling team so we could race. This past weekend we went up to Burlington to race UVM. For most of the guys it was their first first race. I thought it was so much fun racing in a field of all females. Class C and D raced together. I ended up placing 1st in class C (but got beat by someone from class D). This race really made me realize how much you taught me from Wednesday night rides the past few years. I know a lot more than I realized and I was really able to apply this knowledge. I also learned how much other people don’t know about bike handling and how you can’t really trust other riders to be safe. 4 of us made a break away at one point, and I felt like I had to kind of teach the other girls what to do. I just wanted to thank you for all that you have taught me in the past. I’m really enjoying the sport.”

While you may not always get to meet the G2/Juniors, their Wednesday night training rides will begin soon.

The goal of this initiative is to promote bicycle racing among responsible young athletes.

There are various ways to support the G2s:

$$$ – either with your membership renewal or separately via PayPal to info@gvccracing.com, you may donate specifically to the G2 program.

Equipment Program:

One of the hardest parts of racing is finding the equipment to race on. Many younger riders have a mountain bike, but finding an affordable road bike to try racing is difficult. As a solution, the GVCC/G2 has started an equipment donation program. You can donate complete bikes or parts so we can assemble bikes.

Here’s how it works:

  1. If you have old equipment that is collecting dust, outdated, or no longer in need, you can donate it!  This equipment should be in very good condition though.  You can drop it off at Full Moon Vista, or contact Todd Scheske.
  2. GVCC will cover the cost to have the bikes and or equipment professionally inspected and assembled.
  3. A Junior rider will contact program director, Todd Scheske about obtaining equipment.
  4. The bicycle or bicycle will be sold to the rider for $1 and it will be theirs to own. The rider AND parent will sign a contract stating that the equipment is GVCC property and will be returned if the rider leaves the G2 program or ages out.
  5. When the Junior rider is finished using the bike or parts, they donate the equipment back to the program.

Why G2?:
It is GVCC’s next generation…GVCC’s 2-point-0… it’s the future. Wouldn’t it be something if a future Tour de France or World Champion called Rochester home? Dream big!
