Kit Fit Event Saturday December 11 – Mark Your Calendars!


Our yearly kit fitting day is set for Saturday, December 11, from 10am to 2pm at the Berkley American Legion Post 374, 2079 W. 12 Mile Road (just west of Woodward), Berkley 48072.

This is your once-a-year opportunity to try on samples of jerseys, bibs, jackets, and more provided by our partners at Cuore of Switzerland.  This event is intended to help you get fitted for a Cadieux kit based on your technical needs and comfort.  If you have any questions, concerns, doubts, etc. about what sizes you need, please make plans to attend this event.  The samples will be returned to Cuore immediately following the event – there will be no individual fittings.  You may even want to bring kit you already own just to compare the sizes and confirm your needs before ordering. Be sure to take note of all of your sizes, perhaps bring a pen/paper or text it to yourself.  As most of you know – Cuore offers custom adjustments to areas like sleeve, front, and leg length, so you can tailor your fit precisely. All Cadieux kit is custom-made and there are no refunds, so be sure to attend and get your size confirmed before ordering.

We will take every precaution to help protect you against COVID-19.  For your safety, masks will be required, regardless of vaccination status.

Your autumn orders should have started arriving in your mailboxes this past week.  The next order period, featuring our 2022 design, will take place in early January.  The artwork is still being finalized, but will be very similar to the current design (we will share it with the membership when completed).  Thank you for submitting your responses to the recent year-end kit survey – we listened, and will deliver on your request for a blue jersey in 2022!  

You must be a current member to order kit. If you have not yet joined the club for 2022, please visit the Club Shop here:

Thanks and we will see you on December 11!

Exhale Fall Charity Ride and Riders4Research thanks you!

Hi hi, Exhalers, family, and friends!

A heart-felt THANK YOU and major kudos to everyone who made this year’s Exhale Fall Charity Ride such an amazing success!!!

Together you all helped to raise over $11,000 toward JDRF’s efforts to end juvenile diabetes!!!  Wow!!!

We really can’t thank you enough!!!

We’re estimating somewhere on the order of 180 riders, which is based on 154 pre-registrations (some being multi-registrant, some being donation-only), and 43 in-person registrations.
There were 122 confirmed via Strava, but many many participants aren’t on Strava.

Whatever the actual number of riders it was a record-breaking event on multiple levels!

Thanks again to everyone!

Now, let’s get back to training every day all year for next year’s event!  😉

Warm Regards,
\Leon and the Exhale Team

Exhale Fall Charity Ride, 10/17/2021

It is with great pleasure that #Riders4Research and Cadieux Bicycle Club announce the return of the Exhale Fall Charity Ride on Sunday October 17th. Many of you are already past participants in this fundraiser to benefit juvenile diabetes research. This year is going to be SPECTACULAR, because the leaves will be a bit further into their glorious autumnal colors.



The 15th Annual JDRF Exhale Fall Charity Ride is a dirt road cycling event that travels through scenic Metamora, Michigan. The event is a fundraiser to raise awareness and donations supporting JDRF.

Since its inception, the Exhale Ride has donated 100% of all proceeds to JDRF. Riders4Research and Cadieux Bicycle Club have received JDRF Achievement Awards annually for their fundraising efforts.
As always, the goal of the JDRF Exhale Ride is to seek donations and raise awareness for juvenile diabetes. All donations are greatly appreciated and Riders4Research thanks you for your support.

For more information and to register, go to

Please donate+register ahead of time / online as we are not accepting cash / credit cards in person, day-of.


Please follow these steps prior to AND continuing throughout the race day.

You’ll notice a big push for on-line registrations through, which is for stream-lining the registration process and feeding data to our timing crew.

Online registrations are also for your safety in an effort to minimize the time and number of people standing in line to pick up bib numbers. Similarly, online registrations also avoids the need to handle cash, so if for any reason you cannot complete the registration online, please bring your credit card or Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay capable smartphone.

  1. Go HERE to buy a USACycling One-Day License (do this first if your license is expired or if you are unsure about it).

    NOTE: The USACycling site is the only way to deal with an expired experienced rider’s license and it is also the preferred way to deal with a new / novice rider.
  2. Go HERE to register for the 56th Annual Debaets-Devos Bicycle Races, which is on Sunday, August 29th, 2021.
  3. Download the flyer, HERE (and you can preview it below also).
  1. On DAY-OF, remember to bring proof of unexpired USAC or UCI License, or ONE-DAY license.
    PLEASE have your physical license, USACycling App, or license confirmation e-mail handy on your smartphone or printed out.

    NOTE: The link from step 1 also serves as proof of license proof for ANY RIDER, when you show the page on your smartphone to registration staff; it has the information at the top even for year-long USACycling or UCI license holders
  2. If for some reason you could not e-sign a waiver on, you can download a release, HERE, fill it in in your favorite PDF editor and/or print it and use a pen. PLEASE use use BLUE text-color/ink.

    PLEASE PRINT SEPARATE FORMS FOR EACH RACE OF INTEREST, because we need this for efficient data-entry for timing purposes.

    REMEMBER to BRING your printed release(s) to check-in, on DAY-OF.

    HOPEFULLY everybody is fine with #1 + #2 and the e-release/waivers and #5 is not necessary!

Rev 2: The flyer was updated on August 27th to permit Women’s CAT 4 riders to participate in the Women’s PRO 1/2/3/4, because at time of pre-reg closure, there was only one qualified racer in that race.

Rev 1: The flyer was updated on August 9th to increase the Women’s Pro race to 45 minutes (from 40), while reducing the men’s Pro race to 75 minutes (from 90). This was done so that the Women’s races meet the MBRA and USAC length requirements for a State Championship.
