Cycling Club

We organize cycling events to explore, have fun & make fond memories. There are two aspects of the club, trips and racing.

Trips: Are lead by the club captains. We guide the group on a predetermined route through scenic areas, stop at sites & play group games. Breaks, lunch & stops at sites are all factored in. Depending on length they can be half, full day or overnight, typically on a weekend. These trips are beginner friendly & you can bring your own bike or rent one there.

Racing: As a small team we participate in 1-2 tours/races (for road bikes) a semester. We’ll hold regular local rides & plan racing team-specific trips that are longer, higher pace, more challenging and scenic. Need to own a road bike. Minimum 6 members needed for TUJ sponsored tours/races.

Meeting Information: Please inquire for details.
