Team Pasadena Athletic Association Cycling (PAA) The Pasadena Athletic Association (PAA) is a cycling club of approximately 400 members based in the San Gabriel/San Fernando Valley area centered around Pasadena. Teams have raced under the PAA banner since the 1960’s. Though PAA has primarily been known as a masters racing team, the club has morphed into a broad organization representing all types and levels of riders.
PAA boasts current and past members who have won state, national, and international championships on the road, track, cyclocross, and mountain bikes. In 2006, PAA helped launch the PAA Pro team made up of racers competing at the elite level on the road. Additionally, PAA has a structured program of coached rides and clinics available to all its members. So if you’re interested in competing at an elite level on the road or just interested in learning how to be a better rider while making friends we welcome you to join PAA!
The Pasadena Athletic Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose purposes are to provide bicycle racing and bicycling activities for the enjoyment of its members, promote bicycling as a sport, and generally advance the interests of bicycling through organized races, coaching and training events.
Bike MS is a physical challenge for cyclists of every level, but it’s so much more than just a ride. The camaraderie, passion, and memories that come from sharing this experience with our team will stay with us for a lifetime. Bike MS is a day-long and LIFE-long opportunity to make a difference in your/our own life, and in the world. It’s a group effort that transcends personal accomplishment and touches the lives of the thousands of people affected by MS in our community. Join us! It’s more than a ride—it’s Bike MS.
Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling, disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Millions of people are affected by MS and the challenges of living with its unpredictable symptoms, which range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS.
