Mountain Bike Racing:
During the Fall Semester (Aug-Dec) the mountain bike racing season is in full effect. Training is a must during the summer time! When the Fall semester begins we offer organized mountain bike rides for those interested in riding and training with us. Typical race weekends last 3 days (Fri-Sun), usually in the form of camping. Racers have the opportunity to compete in 4+ events: Cross Country, Downhill, Dual Slalom, and Short Track Cross Country, etc. Only the surliest will compete in multiple events! To learn more show up to a club meeting or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Road Bike Racing:
During the Spring Semester (Jan-May) the road racing season is in full effect. Training season will begin in the Fall to ensure adequate conditioning. Training is also done during the race season itself, focusing more so on things like intervals and form in general. On race weekends expect to travel for a maximum of 3 days (Fri-Sun). Usually staying in a hotel. Typically we will compete in a road race on Saturdays, and a criterium race on Sundays. To learn more show up to our meetings or email: email@example.com. Recording your miles using sites like RideWithGPS.com and the app Strava is heavily encouraged in an effort to track your progress.
Are you interested in riding at a competitive level against other west coast universities? Bicycle racing is an exciting and challenging sport that incorporates strength, fitness, coordination, strategy, precision, endurance, guts and most of all, mental fortitude. The races that the university competes in are divided up by gender and ability, so novice riders, please don’t feel intimidated! The club fields both a mountain bike racing team as well as a road racing team and encourages both men and women to compete.
