Cal Cycling

Who We Are:
Cal Cycling is a sports club that offers road, gravel, and mountain biking to the undergraduate and graduate students at UC Berkeley. Whether weekly rides, shredding trails, racing up and down the coast, or sending members to nationals, Cal Cycling has something to offer cycling enthusiasts of all levels. 

In the recreational sphere, we've built our team from one of the smallest into one of the largest in the league at a time when most teams struggled to rebuild post-covid. With riders packing in miles every day, we feel confident that we are among the organizations on campus that have the most fun. Whether shredding berms and sending drops or blasting descents and snagging strava KOMs, we're a community committed to the idea that it's a good day to have a great day.

On the race scene, we rep the gold and blue in a blur on the course. This year alone, on the road side, we've managed to podium in two thirds of races we've entered with the best yet to come, while on the mountain side, we dominated the field with nationally ranked riders and those that they helped elevate to collegiate greatness.


But our club isn't our only focus. We also are committed to expanding the sport and infrastructure of cycling across the East Bay. We're supporters of movements across Berkeley to improve bicycle infrastructure, helping to make cycling a convenience that improves road safety, reduces traffic emissions, and mitigates the amount of urban space owned by cars. We're fundraisers for NICA, helping local youth mountain bike teams have access to the same great sport that we enjoy. And we're co-organizers of the Berkeley Omnium, the longest continuously-running race in North America, which due to our success last year, is this year the home of the Nevada and Northern California District Championship. 

The same discipline and work ethic that it takes to be a Berkeley student is put into the efforts our team chooses to undertake, but the barriers to those efforts are greatly reduced by contributions from our supporters. Our effort to cycling accessible to all students, regardless of income, and expanding the love of the sport is made possible in part because of donations from readers like you. Read below to find out how!


How You Can Help:

Whether flying through the trees or pushing physical limits further than riders could ever imagine, our efforts to make this wonderful sport accessible and enjoyable for all interested students is limited by economic constraints. Through this crowdfunding project, we hope to remedy that. 

As a student-run club sports team, the University does not provide us with financial support and hence we rely on member dues, sponsorships, and the generosity of folks like you. Your valuable contributions support racing and non-racing members alike. 

Funds we raise will be used to subsidize team bikes and equipment, storage facilities, and enable racers to pay for race fees that often put a financial limit on collegiate racers who seek to stand on the podium. In short, we ask you to help make cycling more accessible to current and future members of Cal Cycling and enable us to send as many racers as possible up and down the coast of California in the coming year, putting both mountain and road riders first across the finish line.
