2023 Year-End President’s Message


Dear WUCA Community, As 2023 comes to an end, I’d like to share a brief retrospect and an invitation for your involvement in 2024.

2021 President’s Letter


Well, 2020 was a year none of us will forget!  First, allow me to share the condolences of all at WUCA, including all of our membership, with those who lost loved ones to the pandemic.  As much as we all love cycling, the joy that it brings is no substitute for the family and friends who fill our lives.  We all adapted to the unexpected surprise of the pandemic in our own ways. From a WUCA perspective, there were two standout elements that filled the void left by cancelled races.  Of those who trained hard preparing for the 2020 season, [...]
