JMU Cycling Club provides an avenue for road, mountain, and cyclocross cyclists of all skill levels to improve their performance and overall fitness on a bike. Although racing is not mandatory, we do provide opportunities for our athletes to compete in weekly regional cycling races throughout the states of Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, and North Carolina.

This club participates in the Atlantic Coast Cycling Conference (ACCC) and is a registered club with USA Cycling. Competitive cyclists have the opportunity to compete in mountain biking (including downhill mountain biking) and cyclocross in the fall semester, and road biking in the spring; however we provide training for all disciplines all year long.

There are no club dues, but members may be required to purchase t-shirts to help promote our club around campus. All members are required to wear helmets on every ride and provide their own bicycles. Those who wish to compete may be asked to purchase a JMU Cycling kit or provide their own all black, generic shorts and jersey for races. Competitors also will have to purchase an annual USAC Collegiate Cycling license, and may have to partially or fully cover some of their competition costs.

There are no tryouts for this club; all are welcome to join. We ask our members to attend practices twice weekly (this is about a 3 hour/week time commitment; practice days and times depend on what discipline you ride). We also provide additional riding opportunities throughout the week and encourage riders to attend as many as possible so they can get the most out of their JMU Cycling experience.
