The Century Road Club Association The CRCA is a bicycle racing club based in Manhattan. Founded in 1898, it is the largest in the U.S. Club races (for members) are held in Central Park on most Saturdays from March through November. CRCA is a developmental club geared toward the beginning racer. Free coaching by a Category 1 USCF certified coach is offered to members from April through August. We have many Cat. 1 and 2 riders helping newcomers. Race strategy and tactics, nutrition and training techniques are discussed at club meetings. The camaraderie of club events, where one racer knows the other, is the best way to ease into the rigors of open racing.
