Season Kickoff Sunday 11/4, 11:30-2

On Sunday, November 4th, we will meet at 11:30 a.m. at AHS in the multipurpose room. The meeting is to learn more about the team; get to know each other; have a wonderful potluck lunch (new families don’t need to bring anything); pick up your loaner bike (if applicable); and submit all necessary paperwork.  Riders and at least one parent should plan on staying for a couple of hours.  All family members are welcome!
All new and returning riders must print, complete, sign, pay, and submit all required documents on Sunday the 4th.  We’ll send out an email later that same day with a list of riders who are ready to pedal on the following Sunday, November 11th, and we really don’t want anyone to be left off that list! Please remember to make your medical appointment right away so you’ll be sure to have the medical form signed in time for the meeting.
All the documents can be found on our AHS Cougars website. Links are included below for your convenience.

Important reading

Information for Riders and Parents


Documents – please clip together or put in an envelope

Complete carefully and thoroughly, making sure the rider and a parent sign where needed.  Deposit these four items in the box that will be available at the lunch.  Complete packets only please!!

Team Participation Agreement

Team Waiver

NICA Release of Liability Form

Medical Form (Again, this requires a doctor’s signature, so plan ahead)


Kit Order

Complete the kit order form and attach a check for the appropriate amount.  Take this to Ebba and Francis’s table on the 4th.  New riders, use the Primal sizing chart in advance to select your kit size. If you don’t get what you need from the chart, you can find a returning rider of similar size and ask for advice, and/or try on some of last year’s clothing that will be for sale on the 4th (note that we won’t have every size available).

Kit Order Form


Loaner Bike Form

If you’ll be borrowing a team bike for the season, bring this form with you on the 4th, signed and initialed in several places.  Give it to Francis along with the $200 deposit (cash or check made out to Francis Chapman).

Loaner Bike Use Agreement


Reusable Bag?

We have some goodies to give out, and you will have a chance to pick up very gently used cycling clothes … so you may want a bag in which to collect it all.  Cycling clothes can be very expensive and you’ll need several jerseys and shorts so take advantage of this opportunity to pick some up for free.  We will also be selling some brand new team jerseys and shorts from last season for $25 each.  There will be some veteran riders at the clothing table to help you figure out what you’ll need.  Returning riders should give new riders first crack at these free clothing items.


One more thing: please remember that Daylight Saving Time ends at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday, November 4. Be sure to change your clocks the night before so you don’t show up an hour early!

Looking forward to seeing you all on the 4th!
