It is time for a team photo in our new kits* for our 2019 team sponsorship campaign! As was the case last year, this great and fun event open to you entire family will be held at El Quito Park in Saratoga on Sunday September 9th. Lynn Sestak has reserved the two small BBQ areas that we had last year. The pot luck picnic is from 3:00 to 5:00 PM. More details to follow.
* If you do not have a 2018 kit, we can put you in the back row and still have your smiling face in the team photo!

LGBRC Early History
The Los Gatos Bicycle Racing Club began in 1960 when Bob Tetzlaff and Jack Hartman returned to Los Gatos following the Rome Olympics and three years in the U.S. Army. Together they organized the club featuring a series of training races for junior riders, including Greg Lemond. The Los Gatos Bike Club evolved into the development club the LGBRC is today.
