Redlands has always been about Community

The Team always enjoy the unique atmosphere in the week running up to The Redlands Bicycle Classic.  The city of Redlands is “ground zero” for Jelly Belly Cycling presented by MAXXIS.

The 30-year-old race is best known for home stays and school visits.

The Big Buddies program at University of Redlands, providing after school care for kids 6 to 14 from Redlands, Highland, Yucaipa, and San Bernardino was a particularly fun visit.

This Big Buddies mentee couldn’t believe how light the professional bikes are!  We hope to see her out at Saturday’s criterium or Sunday’s Sunset Loop circuit race.
