Cascade Training Series (CTS)

Want to ride STP or RSVP, but not sure you can get there on your own?

  • Want the skills to ride safely in large groups?
  • Are you relatively new to cycling?
  • Have you ridden a major event before but want to do better this year?
  • Looking for friends who are also planning on some of Cascade's Major Rides?

…then the Cascade Training Series is for you!  

This training series is designed for Cascade members who register for the Group Health STP or RSVP, with the goal of physical and mental preparation for these premier events.  You and fellow event riders will be trained in group and safe riding skills that are key for all cyclists, and of particular value in these large events. Since all riders will be preparing for STP or RSVP, you will get to know riders at your pace level and can make plans to ride events with them.

To participate in the series, you must register when you register for STP or RSVP. Registration is found as an Add On when you register for STP or RSVP. Since there are limited CTS spots available, we recommend you register early. Members-only registration for STP and RSVP opens in January. Not a member? Join today to participate in CTS and take advantage of our many other member benefits. Please read CTS Refund Policy.
