Start a Cycling Team at Your College or University!
Starting a collegiate cycling team is free and easy, and often school club sports departments can give you a small budget to get started! The world of collegiate cycling covers all five disciplines of competitive cycling (Mountain Bike, Cyclocross, BMX, Road, and Track), with categories for riders of all abilities, from pro to beginner, and the atmosphere is always fun and energetic. On top of that, costs are kept low for the college budget: licenses and entry fees are discounted, and your USA Cycling membership gets you access to valuable discounts from a wide variety of brands. You'll be glad you got involved.
The majority of what you need to know to get a team started at your school can be found in this guidebook to starting a collegiate team. What you don't find there, you can also probably find on the Collegiate page of our website. And if you can't find it there, feel free to give us a call at any time, or send us an email. We're passionate about cycling and excited to get more teams started at more schools, so let us know how we can help.
