The Arizona State Cycling Team is an elite group of cycling enthusiasts who attend Arizona State University on a full time basis. Since its inception, each member of the team has actively pursued their education at the University as well as their physical limits on the road, track, and in the dirt. The team has been recognized and receives support from the University, as well as many other areas in the Tempe community. The club’s main activities include weekly club rides in Tempe and surrounding area, club meetings and social events, bike maintenance classes, skills workshops, sports nutrition and sport psychology lectures, and of course competition in the Southwestern Collegiate Cycling Conference.
The club’s primary purpose as an organization is to advocate for responsible, safe and healthy cycling practices and to strive for improved cyclist/motorist relations through appropriate action. The club seeks to achieve its primary purpose through education and by providing a consistent and positive example. This will always be ASU Cycling’s primary function as it is comprised of athletes of all abilities and varying interests and the most crucial ingredient for any member, be they casual or competitive, will always be a prevailing emphasis on bike-safety.
