I am very excited to announce the creation of REV Endurance Cycling.  I’ve been toying with the idea of creating my own endurance cycling team for years.  Just recently a friend of mine suggested it to me and the creative juices started flowing– more like a small trickle;-)  I am creating a team where I coach cyclists with endurance specific goals.  I want to help prepare riders for their first Century.  I want to assist riders who want to move from recreational centuries to climbing centuries.  I want to prepare cyclists for their first Double Century.  And of course, I would love to coach cyclists who want to tackle “the toughest 48 hours in sport” the Furnace Creek 508.
2013 will be my 10th anniversary of endurance cycling.  I began in 2003 with the Grand Tour Highland Triple Century.  I knew so little about this sport when I did my first event.  Over the years I have learned so much.  I wish to share and impart all that knowledge on cyclists who are willing and ready to enter the wonderful and absolutely gratifying sport of Ultra Cycling.
There will be more details to follow.  I have some ideas of my own but I would like to hear from you.
What would draw you to an endurance cycling specific club/team?
What benefits would you be looking for?
Why do you belong to your current club/team?
Is there a specific focus on endurance cycling?
Let’s begin our discussion with these basic questions.  I hope to hear from you soon.

  1. Hey George--I think this is a great idea! I would love to be part of what you're cooking up.

    I'm going to be doing a cross-country ride with Bike and Build and have a lot of training ahead of me as I'm nowhere near ready. T-minus 6 mos. to 3,000+ miles! This is a lofty goal for me as I've never even done a century. An endurance focused cycling club would be the perfect thing to help prepare me and I think I would really appreciate the opportunity to draw on the expertise of others.

    It'd be great to get a dialogue going about this!
