Welcome to PJW Racing

Who is PJW Racing?

A small road and track cycling squad in Minnesota riding bikes and racing bikes as often and wherever we can find a good venue. We are also searching for a new velodrome home closer than 5-6 hours from MN. We have current and past members that have raced at US Elite levels, National Masters and World Masters levels. Some of our members hold or have held track records for their age groups at the National Sports Center in Blaine MN and Boulder Valley Velodrome track in Erie Colorado and have won podium placings at US Masters track Championships in 2009, 2010 and 2011, 2013, 2014, 2017, 2018 and Worlds track championships in 2014 and 2019. You can contact us at pat@pjwracing.com

Our primary sponsor was PJW Automotive in New Brighton MN but since it’s closure in 2018 PJW Racing will be self sustaining with co sponsoring from CARS Bike Shop in Mounds View MN. Also Skratch Labs, FFWD USA wheels, Pactimo Cycling Apparel Ambassador, Stages Cycling Ambassador and the Minnesota Cycling Center (The future of track cycling in MN after 2019.)

Welcome to Rat Racer Coaching

Who is this?

Time for me, Pat, to start to share in all the wonderful experiences and knowledge I’ve acquired racing at velodromes around the USA and the World. Plus, I’ve been lucky to have some great coaches encourage and train me to get some personally rewarding results and experiences. I’ll share some of that knowledge as well. 

Currently I host Zoom trainer rides at no charge for all levels of cycling enthusiasts. Connect with me to get a free invitation to any or all the upcoming rides. About an hour per event, ride at your own pace and intensity within a suggested structure for each ride. Check out the tab above for details. 

Bikes 4 Kids Legacy Fundraiser Virtual Ride. Done for 2020, thanks to those who took part.

Bikes 4 Kids in Ham Lake helps bring joy to children in the form of a new to them bike! Always a good group to donate to and support. 


At Bikes 4 Kids, bikes are donated to from local bike shops, recycling centers, city governments and individuals. They are then refurbish and given them away, along with a helmet and lock, to someone who might not otherwise be able to afford one. Working through social services organizations to locate families in Minnesota who are in need.

Not only are bikes needed but also volunteers. Don’t know how to fix bikes? No problem! Also needed are people who can help with things such as:

  • Cleaning bikes
  • Pumping up tires
  • Setting up orders
  • Moving bikes around
  • Organizing supplies



I am saddened to see where we find ourselves right now. I pledge to learn from past wrongs and do everything in my power to overcome the bias that I have grown up with and accepted and not questioned.

Patrick Whelan, principal of PJW Racing LLC

We all should strive to be more than what we are right now. With all the knowledge, technology and advances we still can not figure out how to share in the greatness that the world has to offer. We still live in a world of those that have and those that have not, it’s time to change.
