As far as we know, the Georgia Tech Cycling Team was founded in 2001 by a couple of guys who liked bikes and are now 10th year grad students. Since then, we have grown into a larger group of riders who like bikes but like racing too.
The Team races in the Southeastern Collegiate Cycling Conference (SECCC) against a variety of collegiate teams and we have riders in all disciplines: track, road, mountain and ‘cross. We typically hold a mountain and road race each season and are always on the lookout to add new members to our roster.
Our main seasons are mountain in the fall, road in the spring and track in the summer. Mountain biking goes from August to October, with 6-8 weekend-long races. Road is from February to April, also 6-8 weekends of racing. Track is special for us, as we have the fantastic Dick Lane Velodrome right in our backyard in East Point. We compete there weekly on Tuesdays and Wednesdays starting in April in preparation for collegiate track nationals in September.
Living in Atlanta and learning to be an engineer poses many challenges that get in the way of riding our bikes, but we somehow make it happen. We like to say that Georgia Tech Cycling is Training and Racing, ENGINEERED TO PERFECTION.
