Thank you for your interest in joining the UCONN Cycling Team. Our team is always looking for new riders.
You are eligible for membership with the team if you are a current or newly accepted and enrolled University of Connecticut undergraduate or graduate student. You can be attending any UCONN campus though, please note that the team is a Club Sport at the main campus in Storrs, CT. You need not own a "special" bike (we have both team road bikes and mountain bikes available) or have any racing experience.
The UConn Cycling team is a club sport at UConn which means we are a competitive team. You do not need to compete in the races to join however most members do. The club is a great entry into both mountain and road racing as many of the members raced for the first time with the team.
You can read a little more about the team on the Home Page. If you have questions, please direct them to our team e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to riding with you!
