Welcome!


       Welcome to the official blog of the Penn State Club Cycling Team!  We are a student-run organization made up of cycling enthusiasts from all disciplines.  As a club sport, we provide an inclusive atmosphere for riders of all skill levels; no tryouts required.  Whether your goal is to get PSU to the top of the collegiate cycling leaderboards, or to simply enjoy weekend rides, this is the organization for you.
       Every year, Penn State riders compete and succeed in all disciplines of cycling, including road, mountain, cyclocross, and track.  We compete in the Eastern Collegiate Cycling Conference (ECCC), which is a division of the National Collegiate Cycling Association (NCCA).  Since 1973 we have fostered talented young riders, and our alumni have achieved national titles, Olympic gold medals, and professional cycling careers.

       Happy Valley features some of the best cycling in central Pennsylvania.  Between the mountainous terrain and minimal traffic, the area is challenging, scenic, and safe for road cycling.  Rothrock State Forest and Raystown Lake offer routes that cater to downhill, enduro, and cross country mountain biking.  Numerous rides are organized each week, and our riders can show you routes that are suitable for every skill level. 

       As a student organization, we receive our funding from our members, our alumni, and through participation in community service projects.  We are also made possible through our sponsors: The Bicycle Shop, Specialized, and the Rudy Project.
        Membership provides special discounts and offers from our sponsors, fuel reimbursement and hotel rooms racing weekends, and an active community of enthusiasts.  For only $60, membership provides many benefits.  For more information, stop by our weekly meetings at 8:00 pm on Thursday in 358 Willard.
