About UMCT

The University of Minnesota Cycling Team is the Twin Cities campus’ competitive and recreational cycling group. We strive to encourage cycling at the University as well as to develop skilled and strong riders and racers through our training and racing activities.

On the recreational front, we have frequent group rides during the warmer months. Watch our Facebook page and emails for any ride postings.

We are a USA Cycling licensed collegiate racing team in the North Central Collegiate Cycling Conference, which we have won at the team level for 16 years running!


We have riders who participate in most major disciplines, particularly road, track, cyclocross, and mountain. The majority of our membership and our season is currently road-oriented in the spring and mountain bike focused in the fall.


Our team group rides are open to any person who has filled out a Sport Clubs Participation Waiver. Further benefits are available to dues paying members in the following tiers:

  • Club Membership ($60): access to winter training sessions, power testing, discounted clothing, and access to team pro-deal purchases.
  • Race Membership ($250): all Club benefits, as well as free travel to all non-Spring-Break race weekends, and a complimentary race team jersey and T-shirt.
