The Frisco Cycling Club is dedicated to advancing the sport of cycling with riders of all levels through local events, group rides, races, and community involvement.

Overview

GROUP RIDES

Frisco Cycling Club regularly attends group rides in and around the Frisco community.  Additionally, FCC leads three weekly ride each week on Thursday, and Saturday.  The rides run every week with an occasional break for locally scheduled races, and inclimate weather.  Real time updates are available by visiting us on FACEBOOK and for more information contact us at membership@friscocycling.org .  

FEAR Ride meets early morning normally on Tuesday and Thursday at 5:30 am. An eye opener ride that loops around in Frisco. The average pace is around 22 mph and normally starts at full speed once the rubber hits the pavement.

TNT Ride (Tuesday Night Training/Torture) meets Tuesday at 6:30 at RBM Frisco. This ride can be ridden by all skill levels supported in our club. The main goal of this ride is for the individuals to push to the limits and practice some interval training. The group will ride to and from the practice loop at a pace of approximately 18 mph avg. In the practice loop, it is keep up or get dropped. The riders will regroup after every lap and wait for 3 to 5 minutes. Any longer and your on your own until 8 pm at the final regroup location to head back to the shop.

OPP Ride (Other People Peloton) meets Thursdays at 6:30 pm in the Mocha & Javas parking lot (Eldorado and Legacy) and covers a 30 mile loop on the east side of Frisco.  The average pace is around 22 mph and eventually makes it way out to the Tribute Golf Course before returning to the coffee shop.

The North Ride departs each Saturday from Richardson Bike Mart in Frisco and follows a 65 mile route north through some rolling hills in Prosper, Celina, Weston, and McKinney.  The pace is brisk and will contain some regular sprint zones for those who wish to exert a little extra.  This route rolls through a section of the popular Tarantula Loop (a.k.a. The Gauntlet) offering a challenging set of small rollers. Times and Routes may change but will be posted on our Frisco Cycling Facebook Page.

Sponsorship

TITLE SPONSORSHIP: Supported the club for the last 10 years. Crest/RBM has become well known in the racing community for it’s participation and success.

HONOR SPONSORSHIP: Founded in 1962, Richardson Bike Mart (RBM) and owner, Ken Woody Smith, give back to the cycling community with both time and resources. RBM now has three locations in the Dallas area to serve your cycling needs. Stop by when you are in the area to chat about bikes, riding and racing with any of the knowledgeable staff at RBM

PRESTIGE SPONSORSHIP: I Ride, I Race, I Represent Cyclists If you are injured while riding your bike, it is important that you contact an attorney who is experienced in both personal injury trial work and cycling. You need to call me, Bill ShirerCyclist at Law TM . I am board-certified in personal injury trial law and have 28 years of trial law experience. I also have the highest rating from Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings. I understand the cycling community and the challenges you face as a cyclist.

PRESTIGE SPONSORSHIP: We believe beer is the perfect blend of Art and Science. We start with the Art of beer – for this we use a big dose of creativity, validated with our eyes to judge the look, our noses to refine the smell and then with our mouths to validate the taste. We embrace tradition but break the rules as well from time to time in order to create exciting new brews.
Once we are elated with the beer, we turn to science to ensure quality and consistency in the brewing process. For this we use our state-of-the-art automated brewhouse, hydrometers, microscopes and other sophisticated monitoring devices. However, in the end we always revert back to the art of a good-tasting beer so our beers are sampled frequently by a panel of experienced quality tasters.
We strongly believe that beer is greatly enhanced when consumed in the company of close friends or random people who will soon be good friends. This can be accomplished in the bars and pubs where you will find TUPPS beer, but you can also have this experience visiting our brewery. At the brewery, we have created an environment that embraces the feel and the era of the historic Cotton Mill. When you visit the brewery, you will be immersed in the old Texas feel of the Cotton Mill and experience the past when things were slow and life was not as complicated.
TUPPS Brewery has a sense of place. We are proud to be in Texas, in the great city of McKinney and located at the historic Cotton Mill. When you visit, keep in mind that we want you to embrace the brewery, so put your feet on the tables, write your name on the wall and bring old bottles to add to our bottle tree farm.

PARTNER SPONSORSHIP: I am a sponsor and part of the group that got the club off the ground in 2007 after it had gone dormmate. I spend more time working and driving our 4 kids around than I do riding but was a Cat 1 in the 90’s. ah the old days.
But I write mortgage loans and have done that since 2002. Would love the opportunity to at least put numbers in front of you if/when you find yourself in the market to purchase or refinance. I have a long history of doing loans for cyclists in the area and happy to share referrals of happy clients if needed. Just did Max Miley’s’ loan as they relocate down to the Hill Country.
