Pitt Cycling Fundraiser 2022-2023

Our Team

The Club Cycling Team at the University of Pittsburgh is a diverse and dedicated group of students who all happen to share a common love of the bicycle. We are a team of riders that range from casual cyclists to hardcore racers and everything in between. Our goal is to promote cycling recreationally as means of commuting, exploring the city, and creating a healthy lifestyle as well as a competitive sport. We strive to be inclusive, advocate for bicycle awareness and safe riding, and introduce cycling to all members of the Pitt community that hopefully leads to a love for cycling that lasts a lifetime. 

Our Project

The Pitt Cycling Team is committed to getting its racers to the races. We work hard to improve and develop our riding skills throughout the year to prepare for competitions in the spring. Our team has joined the Eastern Collegiate Cycling Conference, a competitive cycling conference comprised of teams from over 70 colleges and universities throughout the northeastern United States. We compete in at least 2 out of the 5 spring road races, traveling along the East Coast representing both our school and our sponsors. From beginners to the experienced, the ECCC offers a wide range of events to suit any level of rider, and we encourage participation from all our members. 

Competing for the ECCC is an expensive endeavor that many of our college student members are unable to afford. Pitt is located at the edge of the league’s geography, making each race a long road trip that can be anywhere from 5-12 hours and makes competitions last multiple days. Many costs are necessary to sign up for races and to make this journey including racing licenses and fees, bicycle equipment for repairs, expensive racing jerseys, hotels, and transportation for our members and their bikes. Being a club sports team, we do not receive sufficient funding from the University of Pittsburgh and our team must cover most the costs that come with competing. To put our hard work and cycling abilities to the test we need your help in raising funds to cover the racing costs. 

How You Can Help

Our goal is to provide the opportunity to race free of charge and this is only possible with your help! We are incapable of covering these costs on the team budget, forcing our members to pay out of pocket, thereby limiting access and participation in racing. Through this fundraiser are looking to gather support and spread the word to our loyal alumni network and Pitt community to help the Pitt Cycling Team. We would sincerely appreciate any donation that you are willing to give towards the racing costs and the functioning of our club in the future. Any amount of money helps! If you are unable to donate at this time, please share this fundraiser with your friends, family, and networks. All donations go directly to our team and all donations are tax-deductible. 

Thank you so much for your support!
