We are part of the South Central Collegiate Cycling Conference (SCCCC), which is under the governance of USA Cycling. We compete against the other schools from Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana.
#5. When is your season? Do you practice in the off-season?
Summer is Track Cycling season, Fall is Mountain Bike season, Winter is Cyclo-cross season, and Spring is Road Bike season; so, technically there is no off-season, but those who only participate in one type of riding still do practice in the off-season.
#6. Do students need experience to join?
No experience necessary.
