About the club

Salida Cycling Club (SCC), formerly South Central Racing (SCR), was started in 2004. Our mission is to support all aspects of cycling in Central Colorado by joining a community of riders, racers and kids on bikes. This means riding together, encouraging safe cycling, supporting local racers, promoting events and having fun. SCC Membership is open to everyone.

We believe in giving back to the community, to this end, we have built a close tie with the Chaffee County Mentors. The mentor program provides one-to-one friendships to children in need of positive role models. Local youth ages 7 to 15 years facing challenges academically, economically and socially are matched with responsible adult volunteers. SCC provides bikes and helmets for these kids. Other community projects include an “adopt a highway project” and trail building with the Salida Mountain Trails program.


The Salida Cycling Club is the core cycling community in central Colorado. It is riders, racers and cycling enthusiasts involved in all things cycling. The talk list is our communicationcrestws link, over 100 riders communicate daily about who’s riding when and where. Join SCC and we’ll add your email to the list and you’ll be in the loop. Every year club members are involved in dozens of cycling activities, below is a list of the highlights.


Regular group rides for all levels and spinning classes all the winter. Group rides are open to anyone; the whole point is to ride together, so we make the ride fit the ridersamicasgroup
