USA Cycling, Ohio Cycling Association
Team SixOneFour was founded in 2010 by Tim Sholl and Mark Farmer.
As an amateur cycling program, we are working towards making bicycling a prominent, safe, and convenient form of transportation and recreation through bicycle education, grassroots events, race promotion and civic participation. We have created a balanced, ethical, and responsible group of individuals, all supported by our sponsors. Our team consists of cyclists who pedal in four disciplines of cycling: Road & Criteriums, Mountain biking, Triathlons, and Cyclocross, maximizing sponsorship exposure.
The team recruits members who want to have fun riding and racing bicycles . We believe that comradery is the most important way to keep our team grounded. We support and praise each other privately and publically. Our interests lie in growing and promoting cycling through responsible and safe riding practices. All team members are required to wear helmets at all times while riding and racing.
We are passionate about participating and supporting local benefit and charity rides like Pan-Ohio Hope Ride, Pelotonia, Pedal for Pete, the Ride of Silence, The Steve Barbour Memorial Tour, and many others. We encourage local cycling organizations such as Consider Biking, Yay Bikes, Westerville Bicycle Club, Columbus Outdoor Pursuits, Third-Hand Bicycle Co-Op, and Franklinton Cycleworks.
We believe that growing our roster of Junior cyclists (High-School) is key to the future success and subsistence of cycling in Ohio and cycling in the United States.
We enthusiastically support our current and long time sponsors, Ohio Orthopedic Center of Excellence, Kenda Tires and BikeSource bike shop.
We are interested in discussing new local, regional or national sponsorship opportunities. Let us help spread the word about your brand.
