Cafeteros is an amateur cycling club based in Fairfield county (CT) and Westchester county (NY), founded six years ago by local racers. The club name and “coffee-bean” logo were inspired by the founders’ Colombian roots.
The club is focused on racing and is a member of USA Cycling, the umbrella organization for competitive cycling in the US. Cafeteros has about 35 members of diverse backgrounds and ages, brought together by a common love of cycling and racing.
Members compete in numerous local, regional, and international amateur races, among them:

not the best road race I've participated in."
