Details

The Cadieux Bicycle Club has a long history of supporting bicycle racing, racers, and the cycling community in general.

Description

The Cadieux Bicycle Club is a sanctioned USCF bike club with a long history starting with the Belgium racers who started the club in the Detroit area, originating out of the famed Cadieux Cafe

The club is known for it's numerous training rides including the Saturday & Sunday morning training rides out of West Bloomfield, as well as the race training Derby Rides out of Birmingham. The Club also hosts one of the longest ongoing bicycle races in the Midwest.

The Club was founded on February 12, 1965 at the Cadieux Café in Detroit, MI . The founding members were Robert (Bob) Devos, proprietor of the Cadieux Café and former amateur racer in Belgium, his brother-in-law Frank Van Laeken, Al Roels, a former bicycle racer and often called “Minute A Mile Al” for accomplishing the mile in a minute on rollers, and Adolf Lincklau (Buff), also a former bicycle racer and local bicycle shop owner.

Over the years Bob Devos worked tirelessly to promote cycling, especially racing. With a background in road racing in Belgium, he was a forerunner in the advancement of cycling in the United States. Not only did he promote road races, he also organized professional six-day races at the State Fair Grounds and Cobo Arena in Detroit.

In 1987 Antoon’s Bicycles became the title sponsor of the club and it was during that year that MTB racing became part of the club’s cycling interests. During the late 1980′s and early 1990′s the Antoon’s Bicycles / Cadieux Bicycle Club Mt. Bike team was one of the most successful teams in Michigan.

In 2005 O2 Creative Solutions took over as the main title sponsor and the club has continued to grow. Team O2 / Cadieux Bicycle Club now has, in addition to the road racing team, a track team, a cyclocross team, a MTB team, and a touring group.
