Zwift is an online cycling and running program that makes training indoors more social, dynamic, and fun. Each week, the NCC offers its members organized Zwift rides, including a road race, a hill climb/time trial, and two social group rides. Rides are open to cyclists of all abilities. Zwift is a great way for members to interact with each other, and we often have voice or video chats with each other during the rides.
The NCC is a 100% volunteer run organization, and we can always use your help! There are many ways, and many times during the cycling season you can contribute to a great cause! We are currently looking for help with our two early season events- Massochistah, and Tour of the Hilltowns. Tour of the Hilltowns REALLY needs a volunteer coordinator!
About the NCC
The Northampton Cycling Club was founded in 1999 John Frey, JD Bilodeau and Adam Myerson as an “elite development” program for local bike racers. During the period of 1999-2005, NCC’s support was instrumental in launching the careers of many well known professional cyclists such as multi-time U.S. Cylocross National Champion, Jeremy Powers, Masters Mountain Bike National Champion and renowned coach, Al Donahue.
In 2006 the NCC recast its mission to support expansion of the entire cycling community in addition to elite development. Under a new board, the NCC began to offer beginner rides, bike safety programs, Jr. cycling grants, race participation rewards and introduced a triathlon team as well as the inception of NCC’s flagship community event, BikeFest which is a community celebration of cycling for cyclists of all levels.
Our mission statement: The Northampton Cycling Club is a volunteer-run, non-profit organization whose mission is to promote fun, fitness, and health through the sport of cycling to athletes of all ages and abilities in the Pioneer Valley.
