Who we are
Back Bay Cycling Club (B2C2) is a competitive cycling team based in Boston, MA. B2C2 is a focused group of individuals that work together on and off the bike to realize one another's athletic goals. The team is active in the disciplines of road racing, cross-country mountain bike racing, and cyclocross racing and travel throughout New England and beyond to compete in events throughout the year. With over 40% of the team roster comprised of women, B2C2 is proud to support one of the largest women's teams, and one of the only dedicated elite women's cyclocross teams, in the New England region.
Alongside a deep commitment to racing, B2C2 believes in and seeks out opportunities to create awareness for an active and healthy lifestyle, environmentally friendly practices, and social responsibility through our racing and riding endeavors. B2C2 is supported by fantastic sponsors that mirror these fundamental beliefs.

B2C2 competes in road racing events (criteriums, road races, and stage races) throughout the spring and summer months. This discipline of road racing harnesses an athlete's ability to cope with the physical and mental strength necessary to keep pace on steep climbs, organize and lead a chase group or breakaway, and strategically plot finishing sprints. Often fast, furious, and exhilarating, road racing is a team sport through and through. With a handful of excellent results in 2014, both the men and women of B2C2 are looking forward to a successful season in 2015.
Our top-notch cyclocross squad competes in local and international caliber races alike. Hosted on courses ranging from dry and grassy to muddy and sloppy, find us shredding technically and physically demanding courses throughout the fall and winter months. With a range of intermediate to elite level racers represented on the roster, the B2C2 team has mentored many athletes through the ranks of cyclocross racing to compete and succeed at the highest domestic level of the sport.
With roots as an endurance mountain bike racing team, this discipline is close and true to B2C2's mission. Combining technical finesse, agility, and endurance, mountain bike riding and racing is as challenging as it is downright fun. The B2C2 squad is home to top-level mountain bike racers with competitive goals and beginners looking to improve their handling and climbing sills on local trails. Racers compete individually and on teams throughout the spring and summer in mountain events throughout the region.
