Beginning Monday May 19th, group rides with 10 or fewer people will be permitted here in Minnesota.

Please respect the Stay At Home order through the weekend by riding solo or with people from your household only.

Thank you!

**EDIT: We spoke too quickly. Per Stay Safe MN, all people in groups of 10 or less are expected to maintain social distancing. Unfortunately, group rides are not considered social distancing. Please refrain from group rides until Governor Walz lifts the social distancing requirements:

USA Cycling has announced that they will end permit restrictions as of May 31st and will allow racing to occur beginning June 1, dependent on local and state guidelines during the pandemic. Before returning to racing, we at MCF want to prioritize the health and safety of our community. In the event that the state of Minnesota and any local municipalities allow an event of our size, we would like to know how our community members feel about holding such events. Your responses below will be used to inform our decision making process for the 2020 road season calendar.

Good Morning Riders!

Today would have marked the day of our first scheduled criterium at the State Fair grounds. Thank you all for your understanding while we are staying home during this pandemic.

One of the things that I have loved about bike racing is the community, we have one heck of a community of racers. While we may not be able to race today, we sure can tell stories of our first race!

Challenge for today - post a picture of your first crit race, and tell the story of how it went! you can post it here or tag Minnesota Cycling Federation.

Meet The Board

Jason Beck

Jason Beck

President

Jason Beck started racing triathlons in 2012 and realized that the bike portion was his favorite event. Although it took a few years, he showed up to a Machinery Hill Criterium in 2016 and hasn’t looked back. After 2 years as MCF Board Secretary, he moved into the president role. Jason hopes to use his experience as a product manager to grow the sport in Minnesota by making it more accessible to more people. His favorite disciplines are Criterium and Cyclocross.

Erin Ayala

Erin Ayala

Vice President

Erin is a sport psychologist and former triathlete who discovered bike racing after one of her mentors encouraged her to give it a shot in 2017. She is a three-time Dirty Kanza finisher and active road racer in the community. She also dabbles in other disciplines to keep things interesting. She has worked hard to strengthen the community of women/ trans/ femme racers here in Minnesota and is excited to start giving back to the community in a formal role as VP.

Charlie Anderson

Charlie Anderson

Treasurer

Engineer by day biker by night. Long time racer on the road and mountain bike.  Got my start in Wisport races back in the day.  First racing license in college and haven’t looked back since.  Track racer (formerly?) and occasionally on the road.  Attended Master’s Track nationals in 2013 and came away with two top 10s.

 

I love math, so treasurer seems like a perfect way to give back and complement my skill set.
Atsuko Fukushi

Atsuko Fukushi

Secretary

Atsuko came to bike racing after commuting around town, doing some alleycats and riding gravel in college. The supportive infield of the track got her racing, and she now races cyclocross, road, and occasionally, mountain. Atsuko is passionate about introducing the sport to new women/ trans/ femme/ nonbinary and POC riders. She is a road and cross promoter, focusing on how to lower barriers to entry and make sanctioned racing less intimidating for newcomers. She is excited to serve on the board of MCF to work on new and exciting initiatives!
