“I love Higher Gear.  You guys really know how to have fun!!  The team tent at cx races is definitely the place to be…great food and great people!  I’m looking forward to the race season being part of the Higher Gear team!” – Nancy Heymann


Whether you’re looking to learn the ropes with a serious group of junior racers, to burn some serious calories with intense power-focused indoor workouts in the winter, to ride with a welcoming and knowledgeable group of women, to get in training miles for a century, to get in on the action of cyclocross or find a weekend group ride

Higher Gear has the ride for you.


From spring through fall, we coordinate weekly group rides out of our two locations. Check our calendar to see current events and rides. Through the winter, we stay in cycling shape by riding in our boutique CompuTrainer Studio. Throughout the year, we offer informative clinics as well as festive events. Like us on Facebook for the latest photos and to keep current with what’s going on at Higher Gear.

No team has more fun than the Gearhead Team!
