Bakersfield Track Club - (running club but list's tris, duathlons, and other cycling events)
    The Bakersfield Track Club is dedicated to providing a healthy and active lifestyle within the running community by organizing and directing racing events for runners of all ages in and around Bakersfield. Our affiliates achieve personal athletic goals through the sport of running. We offer numerous flat, cross-country runs, and road and bike path races. The Bakersfield Track Club is committed to providing runners of all levels information on upcoming events. The club encourages participation in group activities—club meetings, web discussion, race events, and other social activities.  We are here for you!


Helmets are required on all rides because mountain biking can be a dangerous activity, even while just hangin’ around before or after a ride!

The SSFTA is a fun social group and our invitation to ride is not an assumption of any liability whatsoever on the Club’s, member’s, sponsor’s, or affiliate’s part. The terrain and group-ride dynamics can be extremely variable and can possibly exceed any rider’s ability at any time. The SSFTA is not responsible for accidents or ignorance on yours or anyone’s part.

Your decision to show up and ride with SSFTA or any of its members, affiliates, sponsors, et al., expressly waives your right to blame anyone else for your or others poor judgment, mishaps, equipment failures, dumb luck, or any other “lame-blame-game” or excuse you or others may harbor or concoct.

Speaking of equipment failures, if yours does, someone else might be able to fix it but you should be prepared to deal with it without counting on others. Wear proper clothing and by all means come prepared to hydrate and nourish yourself before and during the event. You should also consult with a physician before attempting any exercise (and you should consult with a psychiatrist if you have any other issues). Always carry clear identification and insurance cards.
