Why You Should Join
Fun & fitness.
In addition to the fitness benefits of riding your
bicycle, it's always more fun to ride with a group. You can
chat, joke, make new friends, and enjoy yourself, all while
getting an amazing workout.
The 2011-2012 racing
team at our spring BBQ.
Riders at any level can benefit from the knowledge,
experience, and comraderie of our diverse membership and
numerous social events.
Instead of the high tension and flaring tempers often
evident at traditional USAC
races, collegiate racing has a fun and welcoming atmosphere.
With Intro to Racing categories in every event, every race
weekend, and people who genuinely enjoy racing, even in the
unpredictable New England spring, race weekends are an
indescribably fun adventure.
Learn something new.
With a large number of students on the team, both
undergrad and graduate, and the occasional Harvard professor,
you're certain to learn something new every day, whether
about cycling, science, or the arts.
Be a part of something larger.
We provide many leadership opportunities for students,
both on and off the bike. By riding with us, you can help
support our dual mission of promoting cycling at all levels
around Harvard while also providing student cyclists with
opportunities to develop the leadership and organizational
skills so valuable in a professional career.
