Charged with creating, setting up, and manning the area, SLO Nexus will be providing the city with a much-needed space for all cyclists commuting in on their bikes from all around the town. SLO Nexus encourages all spectators to arrive at the finish line area by bike, and help mitigate the large amounts of automobile traffic and congestion in the Downtown vicinity.

January 2006 - Introducing Team SLO Nexus. There's a serious buzz about bikes in San Luis Obispo these days. The new cycling and racing team inspiring all this excitement—Team SLO Nexus—brings together people who love to ride bikes, race bikes, and promote bike riding in our community. Our fresh outlook on the local bike scene incorporates support, fun, education, and fitness and is designed to bring together the growing number of cycle-centric athletes within our county.

Our mission includes providing support to local advocacy organizations that promote the benefits of cycling, especially as a viable means of transportation. We are focusing on local businesses in our sponsorship endeavors because we want to help strengthen and promote our local small-business community, which is so diverse and full of personality, just like each SLO Nexus member.

Our members have a passion to share the cycling experience with others and the desire to cultivate it within themselves. Team SLO Nexus is a timely convergence. The idea for SLO Nexus was born during a normal Saturday morning road ride. Cruising south on Highway 1, a few friends decided we needed a local team/club that would encourage us to spend more time with our bikes as well as tp get stronger, meet other bike-minded folks, and maybe do a little racing. We are truly a nexus of bike enthusiasts of every flavor, including road, mountain, single speed, recreational, commuting, racing, and every kind of riding in between. We are serious about providing a venue for accomplishment, camaraderie, and continual learning for every cycling level—whether one is a focused racer or a recreational weekend rider.
