An excerpt from the USA cycling license renewal notification and 2009 recap:
December 21, 2009
Dear USA Cycling Members,
As 2009 draws to a close, I’d like to thank you for your continued participation in our great sport and for your continued support of USA Cycling.
2009 was another extraordinary year for American cycling as membership in USA Cycling increased more than 6.0% compared to 2008, marking our seventh consecutive year of growth. Additionally, our number of affiliated clubs increased by nearly 10% while our number of competitive event sanctions increased by nearly 4%. Overall, in 2009 USA Cycling grew to just over 66,800 licensees who belonged to more than 2,250 clubs and participated in 2,640 sanctioned events! Thank you for helping sustain this amazing decade of growth in American cycling!
CEO USA Cycling
