Club Info: The Nevis cycle Club was formed on a whim in 1996, it had come to our attention that there was a race happening on our sister island of St Kitts, it was the Caribbean Cup Mountain Bike race series. We got a few sponsors together, had some T-shirts printed, grabbed our bikes and off we went, to battle. It was an unmitigated disaster, we had no experience or training, we got lost, injured, dehydrated, you name it, but we nearly all finished, and we had been bitten by the MTB bug.
So, onto pastures new, encouraging the riders to take part in the St Kitts ITU Triathlon that had started in 1999, as members of relay teams, after all riding is riding, we donned slicks on our mountain bikes and went boldly into the fray, well, whaddayouknow, we had a great time and fared very well. We got hooked on triathlon, we just had to get over the very slight hurdle of not being able to swim!, not to be deterred we started training and entered the St Kitts mini-series which they had started as a build up to the ITU event. With a biking background we would emerge on mass from the water at the back of the pack, but soon managed to claw our way into contention, so that going into the run we often had the top 6 positions for team Nevis, ready for the run off to finish. We had arrived, again!!! Club Sponsors: Our current main sponsor is BIO-SPORT a US based company that produces a sports hydration drink called FLY.

Map location is based off of a geocode of the addressed entered using Google's Google Maps API. If your address does not geocode properly, you can either update the address (we will attempt to re-geocode after any updates to your entry) or you can use Google's geocoding tool found here: http://gmaps-samples.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/geocoder/singlegeocode.html to obtain a lat/long for your location and enter that. To use the utility, type in an address that is close to your location and then drag-and-drop the marker to obtain the desired lat/long. If you choose to enter a lat/long, you must check the box on the edit page that says, "override geocode with entered lat/long."
