At Mike's Bikes, we feel it is important to give back to cycling. While we receive multitudes of requests for sponsorship, we try to avoid highlighting individuals, and choose to put our weight behind teams (or in the case of the Nor-Cal High School League, the League as a whole) in order to advance the sport.
Team Mike's Bikes Our Elite Men's road team is racing on Specialized Tarmac SL4 and Venge frames, Sram Red components, Zipp wheels and cockpits, and Specialized shoes, helmets, and saddles.

Red Racing A group of female cyclists committed to developing competitive racers while building awareness and supporting the American Heart Association. Their combined mission is to dispel the myths and raise awareness of heart disease as the number one killer of women. They hope bike riding can be another means to empower women to take charge of their heart health, to feel young again, and to be inspired to live a healthy lifestyle.
NorCal High School League The NorCal High School League was organized to provide a well defined race season for junior racers and to promote the formation of teams at public high schools. The NorCal High School Mountain Bike League works to establish and maintain safe, quality high school mountain bike programs. We share their goals, among them the value of cycling to our community as a mode of transportation and as a life long sport. As opposed to picking one team in the league to sponsor, we have chosen to support the league as a whole. Click here to visit the League website.
