Past Semester Recap and New Road Season

Many exciting developments have been made over the past year and the University of Arizona Cycling Club is exciting to be making progress as a competitive team and a growing presence in our community.

Most importantly, the UA has been recognized by USA Cycling to be the cycling club with the most growth in 2013! Please read more about that over at USA Cycling –¬†http://www.usacycling.org/2013-collegiate-club-membership-contest-winners-announced.htm

The club is also proud to not have developing road and mountain biking squads but this year we were able to send a small squad to race at USA Cycling Cyclo-cross Nationals in Boulder, CO from Jan 8-12, 2014.
