The KSU Cycling Team is made up of cyclists ranging from beginners to licensed competitive racers, leisure riders, and of course road, mountain, and cyclocross riders. The goals of the KSU cycling team are to introduce interested riders to the sport of cycling and promote a healthy lifestyle through fun and physical fitness as well as student involvement.
Though cycling is not sponsored by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), collegiate cycling is sanctioned by USA Cycling, the national licensing and governing body for competitive cycling in the United States. KSU competes in collegiate events against other universities and colleges within the North Central Collegiate Cycling Conference (NCCCC), one of ten regional divisions of the National Collegiate Cycling Association (NCCA) through USA Cycling. Like the traditional NCAA sports, collegiate cycling is seasonal, however there are events throughout the year in many different categories beginning in fall with mountain bike season, through the winter with cyclocross season, followed by the road racing season in spring. Each seasonal category concludes with a National Championship event sponsored by USA Cycling.
Currently the dues are $50 to join the team and we encourage interested KSU students to come to a team meeting and go for a ride to see what we’re all about. For more information on joining the team please visit our Join page here.
