About the Club
The WWU Cycling Team is a competitive club sport supporting and funding road cyclists to participate in the collegiate race season from March to May. We always welcome non-competitive cyclists of all abilities in our weekly, no-drop training rides every Sunday at 9 in front of the Rec Center. These are relaxed social rides to network with other cyclists and enjoy the scenery of Bellingham! Being a member of our Facebook group “WWU Cycling Team 2019-2020” and participation in our team rides can also help cyclists of other disciplines find other members to race in track, cyclocross and mountain biking. As a team using WWU Sports Club funding and our own fundraising, we compete in many road races in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana and consistently send riders to Collegiate Nationals. However, Western’s team is not solely for experienced racers. One of our major focuses is the encouragement and development of cyclists at ALL levels, from commuters to top-level athletes. There are categories in each race that support entry level athletes to compete with cyclists of similar paces and abilities. We are also proud to be active members in a community that continues to give us so much, and we are lucky to call Bellingham our home.
