Helena United Cycling
The vision of the Helena United Cycling (HUC) Team is to include, inspire and develop at the grassroots level with the objective of representing Helena at local and national competitive and non-competitive cycling and triathlon events. We seek to build the exposure of the team's racing program and promote the Helena United Cycling Team throughout Montana and the United States. The members of the HUC Team aim to create an inclusive, enjoyable, competitive and well coordinated racing program for all levels and ages. This team is about establishing life long relationships with each other where we can all share the love we have for cycling.
Team members enjoy race support, team clothing, team training and group rides. As such, team members are encouraged to always train and race in their Helena United Cycling Kit to promote awareness of and support for the team. HUC Members will also give back to each other by coaching new riders and participating in club events.
The Team meets the second Tuesday of every month. Helena United Cycling has several levels of membership from community support, causal riders, and dedicated racers.
Bikes are important to the Gravity Guild, but above bikes are the people who ride them and collectively make this sport worth participating in and dedicating our lives to. A group of riders in the greater Helena, Montana area, made up of locals and implants, have organized into a community of trail builders and racers. People dedicated to the skill and growth of riding bicycles for both themselves and others in their community.
Our Objectives are as follows:
Infrastructure: Primary objectives of the team are to create gravity oriented biking trails as well as develop a venue which will eventually be able to host events and also a periodic (weekly or bi-monthly) local race series.
Competition: The formation of the Guild is a necessary step towards adequate representation at regional race events in the Mountain States and throughout the Northwest. This representation pertains to team unity, at-race support and a conveyance of information concerning race dates, locations and transportation issues associated with travel to and from races.
Community Involvement: Paramount to the team’s mission, it is a primary goal of the team to promote active community involvement with and enthusiasm for gravity riding and racing through responsible trail building and maintenance, local race participation for all ability and age groups and cycling-based community promotions such as fundraisers and riding clinics.
