A New Home for our Old Kit
While our team may now be known as 'To Be Determined' we actually first came together many years ago as Team Sixcycle before spending several chia filled years as Team Health Warrior. With the transition to our current identity we were left with a huge stockpile of obsolete but incredibly high quality Garneau kit. From the beginning there was no question what we wanted to do with that kit. The first load went to a youth cycling program in Havana, Cuba last fall as part of a trip that one day will feature on the Journal (I swear!).
Separately we also worked with Scott Savory of Jamison Capital-Cannondale to send another large load of Team Sixcycle / Team Health Warrior kit to Guyana. In face we just received these images of the kit being put to good use 2,500 or so miles South of New York City. A huge thanks to Scott for leading the charge on organizing this effort:

As we put the finishing touches on our new team identity as To Be Determined earlier this year our friends at Garneau, with whom we have worked with since 2011, asked us if we could summarize our team's backstory. A sort of where we came from and where we are going. Without further adieu, our origin story.

Blood Road is a poignant film from endurance athlete Rebecca Rusch that intertwines beautiful storytelling and cinematography with a long and emotional journey by bike. We attended the New York City premiere and provide a quick recap.
Despite its issues the Harlem Skyscraper Classic has too much legacy and is too important to the New York City cycling community to let it fail. It's time to save the Harlem Crit.
As part of the buildup to this weekend's CRCA New Rider Clinic the club hosted an information session at the Rapha Store. We were there as CRCA sub-team members provided a brief guide to racing in New York City.
