About the series

This annual training series is named in memory of Colin RF Craig. Colin was a native of Bozeman and grew up to love skiing and especially bicycling. This love, combined with a selfless, giving nature, led Colin to be one of the greatest supporters of all things cycling in the Gallatin Valley and beyond. We are excited to honor him with this series, while supporting the Colin Craig scholarship fund.

These events happen every Tuesday night from April to August and rotate between circuit events, criteriums, road events, and time trials. See the schedule page for dates, locations, and start times. The series is offered for riders to train and improve. Many use it to build strength and endurance, while others use the opportunity to learn to better ride in a group setting. Everyone is welcome to join in the events regardless of event experience (please review the rules/regulations page), but be prepared for fast-paced, friendly competition! Though the events can be highly competitive, the emphasis should always be on training to get better.

How can I join in the fun?
  • Fill out the GVBC online membership form here, which includes a link for CCMS signup.
  • Pay the fees online if possible, otherwise mail a check to GVBC
  • Sign up for volunteer slots on the volunteer page
  • Fill out a waiver form and bring it to the event
  • Participants are also required to have a USA Cycling membership ($70, www.usacycling.org), or will have to purchase a $10 day license at each event. The one day license form is available for pre-event printing from the Print Forms button on the bottom of the main CCMS page.
That's it! See you at the series.

Volunteer Information and Sign-up

Volunteers are at the core of this series. For this reason, we encourage everyone to get involved in volunteering, especially newcomers. Volunteering is also a great way to get to know the details behind a bike race, and an opportunity to meet and talk with fellow racers and series veterans.

We have a few series rules for volunteering:
-Volunteer signups are now open!
-Riders will need to sign up for 2 volunteer slots just as in the past
-Out of your 2 volunteer slots, please sign up for one RR if there is one still needed.
-Volunteers may NOT have someone else fulfill their volunteer duties AND ride during the same event
-Volunteers are REQUIRED to show up 45 minutes before event time.
-Volunteers are required to drive to the event venue.
-The photo position is not a required position, so please fill that spot last. The other positions are REQUIRED in order for the event to begin.
-The season will not begin until the schedule has been filled.

Any rider is welcome to fill any position. For coordinators we have a helpful walkthrough below. Print it out and bring it with you to the race as a reference. The other volunteer positions are described in the second document below.
