Our club has built a culture of Buffalonians riding together that dates back to the 19th Century. Some high moments of amatuer cyclng include the 1972 US Olympic cycling team coming to WNY for a race in the Boston hills, which sparked the formal re-establishment and incorporation of the BBC.
In 1973, the club emerged as an official nonprofit organization. Founding member Larry Reade went on to dominate the national scene, winning a stunning 11 Masters National Time Trial Championships from 1975 - 1997 and the America's Cup 1980 and 1981.
In those early decades, Barb and Larry Reade steered the direction of WNY cycling, building a reputation for our region along with the foundation for our club. Their work provided an opportunity for us to host the best in New York at the Empire State Games, held in Buffalo in 1985 and 1986.
More recently, our club produced the Larkinville Criterium Series from 2013 - 2019, a weeknight race series in Larkin Square that drew riders from all over New York, Canada and neighboring states, widely known as one of the best club produced events in the modern era.
