Collegiate Cycling

With the support of your team, it's the most fun you'll ever have on a bike.



The mission of the USA Cycling Collegiate program is to provide opportunities for team-oriented bicycle racing for student cyclists of all genders and abilities.

The program has the following key objectives:

  • To provide new riders with a welcoming introduction to collegiate cycling – both riding and racing;
  • To enable elite riders the option to pursue higher education while benefiting from development opportunities that integrate with amateur and professional teams and national development programs;
  • To creating personal growth and leadership development opportunities for scholar athletes both on and off the bike; and
  • To ensure that the sport is low cost and accessible to any student who wants to participate.
