Help support UCLA Cycling's 2024 and 2025 race seasons!

   The UCLA Cycling team is open to all who want to explore the sport of cycling. Whether you have extensive racing experience or don’t own a bike, we are happy to have everyone join the team and develop a love of cycling! Over the years, we have created a strong community that enjoys casual rides along the ocean just as much as competing at (and winning!) Nationals. As we navigate the often-stressful collegiate years, having cycling and this team to lean on has provided our members with a healthy and constant focus.


    Unfortunately, cycling is a very expensive sport. The cost of getting and maintaining a safe road or mountain bike is already very high for a college student to bear. Over the course of their time on the team, many members also decide to race. Our race season takes us all over California, from Berkeley to San Diego. Furthermore, many members decide to race a majority of the Californian race weekends, which means 5 or more weekends of travel throughout the state. This is an expensive endeavor, between the cost of hotels, gas, nutrition, and race registration fees. While our team already requires dues to join, these are not enough to cover all the racing we want to offer our members throughout a race season. We want to ensure that team members are able to continue to make the most of all the great bike racing opportunities we have here in California, for no additional cost to them.


    As we strive to maintain the cost of participation in our sport as low as possible, we need your help! Countless UCLA students have found their place on this team, in the road or mountain bike squads. Each year, we witness first-hand the joys of road racing as we host the well-loved UCLA Road Race in Pearblossom, CA. This race is the first of many in most members’ collegiate racing career, and unlocks a new passion for them. The rest of the racing season allows for rapid growth in racing skills and success, leading many past members all the way to Nationals. In order to support our teammates as they race throughout California this year and in future seasons, we need your help! Your donation will help further our team goal of making cycling and bike racing more accessible.

 


Thank you!
