We are a USA Cycling-sanctioned Club that exists to help develop amateur racers of all ages, but particularly junior racers under the age of 18.

Specifically, we coach the Palouse Composite team in the spring as well as a Cyclocross team in the fall.

The Corporation is organized and shall be operated exclusively for charitable and educational purposes, and for fostering national and international amateur athletic competition, within the meaning of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (or corresponding provisions of any subsequent federal tax laws). The specific purposes and objectives of the Corporation shall include, but not be limited to, the promotion and development of amateur bicycle racing in the Palouse region of Idaho and Washington. In furtherance of that purpose, the Corporation shall:

  1. Conduct or participate in programs to identify and develop new cyclists, particularly junior racers under the age of 18;
  2. Conduct or participate in programs to assist cyclists in the development of their competitive and riding skills, and to ensure safe riding, training, commuting, and competition;
  3. Seek to uphold the rights and interests of cyclists and to communicate these interests to governmental authorities and the general public;
  4. Promote the development of safe routes to school, shared roads and pathways, and other means and mechanisms to ensure that cycling remains a realistic and safe mode of transportation and recreation for all citizens;
  5. Promote the mission of USA Cycling; and
  6. Engage in all legal activities consistent with the Corporation’s purpose and these enumerated activities.

All coaches are licensed through the Washington Student Cycling League. Learn more about the coach licensing.

We need coaches!

We’ll be having a ~90 min meeting on Saturday 12/10/2022 at 4pm to get all of us on the same page: common goals, address concerns, discuss the upcoming season and reflect on our last few years of riding & racing. Beverages and light snacks provided! Your level of commitment as an adult rider or team assistant is up to you; we have a place for everybody. Attending this meeting does not commit you to the season!  We have a need for all levels of adult riders. Email “palousecomposite@gmail.com” for details.
