About Us

Welcome to TheBikeRacer.com.  My name is Mike Byrd and I created this website for bike racers, cycling enthusiasts, and race directors.  I came up with the idea for TheBikeRacer.com this summer (2007) while driving across the country during my move from San Diego, California to Charlotte, North Carolina.   I stopped in Louisiana and tried to find a local race.  I realized how hard it was for an out of town rider/racer to find local races.  It was almost like you had to be a ‘local’ to know what was happening in your area.

There are a couple other similar sites on the Internet.  They serve their purpose but I wanted a site that took the best aspects of each website and put it into one website.  My goal is to present a complete national race calendar with links to each race, race results and the photographer at the race (provided, of course, a photographer was at the race) in one easy to use, well designed website.

I hope you enjoy your visit to TheBikeRacer.com and it helps you plan your race season.  If you are a race director, I hope my site helps you fill your racers and keeps your race sponsors happy.  If you have any comments, ideas or even criticism of TheBikeRacer.com, please don’t hesitate to contact me at mike@thebikeracer.com.  I want this to be the Number One Race Calendar for years to come.

I’m working at Cool Breeze Cyclery in Mooresville, North Carolina.  If you’re in the area, stop in and say hello.
