Mission Statement

Shawnee Trail Cycling Club is a community focused organization dedicated to the sport of cycling for fitness and bicycles as an alternative, energy efficient, mode of transportation. The genesis of our name, Shawnee Trail, incorporates the rich heritage of Frisco andNorth Texasas a transportation mecca during the early 1800’s, while incorporating the evolution from horses and wagons, to newer forms of transportation as bicycling.

We support a variety of cycling specialties including road and track racing, commuting and road and mountain biking. Our mission is for each club member to become an ambassador of the sport of cycling and to increase visibility and acceptance of the sport through:

  1. Promoting strict compliance to traffic laws
  2. Education and mentoring of all cyclists to create awareness of "cycling best practices" to ensure the safe enjoyment of the activity
  3. Participation in, and sponsorship of education activities and events promoting cycling as a viable, "green" transportation alternative.
  4. Continuous demonstration, through our actions, of all benefits of participation in cycling as an activity, at any level.

Cycling Club membership is comprised of cycling enthusiasts of all ages with a wide range of abilities and interests.

However, most importantly, Shawnee Trail Cycling Club is NOT a racing club (although racers are welcome). Our members are primarily comprised of mainstream cyclists that share a passion for safely riding the bicycle! With multiple group ride options per week, Shawnee Trail Cycling Club, offers rides which cater to a variety of rider experience levels. Further, members acknowledge a responsibility to share our sport, our experience, and our commitment as a group with the larger community in which we live.
