    Hello everyone!  

    In addition to the outstanding work that Don Silas and others have done to build a group of cyclists who ride longer distances in a no one is left behind format, the club is also working to reboot our legacy mentoring program.  We have passed the point of admitting our long standing deficiencies and are working to meaningfully move our actions to directly align with our mission statement.

    What we are doing:  We will build a group of ride guides who can provide an excellent group ride experience for new/novice/inexperienced riders at a pace and distance that suits them whatever that may be.

    When are we doing this:  Our goal is to provide this experience on every CIBA ride.   For this season we have targeted at least 6 rides as a pilot which are Old Schoolhouse Tour (April 15th) , Pedalmentalist (April 16th), Tour of the Boonies (May 21st), Gray Goat Franklin Start of Summer  (June 17th), Nutter Butter (June 24th), and Tri County (July 15th).  More may be added at a later time. 

    You can help in two ways... Sign up to be a guide or group participant and/or help spread the word and invite people to come to these 6 rides.

    More info can be found here:

    CIBA/IndyPL Speaker Series with Dean Peterson

    Wed, January 18, 7:00pm – 8:30pm


    40 E St Clair St, Indianapolis, IN 46204, USA


    Dean Peterson, Marian University Cycling Head Coach •Arguably one of the most successful coaches in the country in any sport, Dean Peterson enters his 10th season at the helm of the most successful program in collegiate cycling history. •In addition to his duties as head cycling coach, Peterson is also the director of the Indy Cycloplex where he leads a small staff and community volunteers dedicated to advancing the mission of cycling in central Indiana. •Peterson brings 33 years of bicycle racing experience and 27 years of teaching experience to Marian University and the Indy Cycloplex. He has coached, trained or raced in Europe, Africa and Cuba. He is a USA Cycling Level 2 coach and a three-time national champion. • During his tenure, he has undertaken a strategic shift in the program to advance MU cycling from its track cycling roots to a five-discipline focused program that excels within the team concept. •Peterson leads the team with a school-first philosophy, reminding student-athletes that they are students first and that being a responsible citizen and community member is just as important as being a top-notch cyclist. It is this philosophy which serves as the cornerstone for the cycling team’s three straight (2013, 2014, 2015) USA Cycling Club of the Year awards, which evaluates not only on-bike performance, but team GPA, retention, post-graduation success, and community engagement. •The Knights, under Peterson's tutelage, have won the last three USA Cycling Collegiate Overall Team Omnium titles as the most prolific program in the country, the Knights won four national championships in the five disciplines with a runner-up finish in the fifth •In 2015-16, the Knights have won their tenth straight D1 collegiate track cycling title, fifth straight CX title. •After arriving at MU and maintaining the success on the track (MU had won eight previous titles), Peterson first built the dynasty that is the road program. He has been quoted as saying the road competition is the "crown jewel" event that most people know the most about. He moved to the off-road disciplines and had immediate success that has maintained.
