Who Are We?
Texas Cycling is a club at The University of Texas at Austin that is run under UT RecSports. Our members are UT students, faculty, or affiliates that are interested in riding bikes, racing bikes, and making friends.
We’re primarily a social organization, with lots of fun get-togethers and events that help make everyone in the club one big group of friends that all seem to like — sometimes love — bikes. On the social side of things, we have regular rides from campus that go to different eateries, along with beginner rides in the fall semester, participation in large Austin rides, and spontaneous member led rides in our Facebook group.
We don’t shy away from competition, however! Texas Cycling participates in the South Central Collegiate Cycling Conference (SCCCC) under USA Cycling (USAC) in organized road, mountain bike, cyclocross, and track events. We consistently are a top team in the conference and send members to nationals yearly. Our goal is to promote cycling for everyone, and one of the most exciting things you can do is race. Even from a beginner level racing is fun and is something that we recommend every member try at least once regardless of skill level.
Overall, our team strives to establish a positive and fulfilling atmosphere to promote cycling for our riders and for the entirety of the UT campus. Our club makes it a point to help in the cycling community and make it a great place for everyone.
