We would like to announce a wonderful new sponsorship with J&L Pie Company!!!
If there’s one thing we love more than burning calories on the bike, its smashing whole pies at the dinner table (or any table really, am I right trackies?). So if you’ve got that sweet tooth, go out, get a pie and think of UCSD Cycling and J&L Pie Company as you eat your training away, or as we like to call it, “active recovery”.
For our dedicated website readers, you will notice some issues with the site for a short period of time. Recently we transferred servers and updated from a super ancient version of word press to a new version. The site is a little bare bones right now, but we will be bringing back some of your favorite features as well as generally trying to improve the organization and quality of the site.
Stay tuned!!! In the mean time, head on over to the UCSD Cycling Facebook page to get your fix.
If you have not already done so, please pre-register for the Boulevard Road Race. This is one of the largest races in the country that is entirely put on by college students. All of the proceeds fund the UCSD Cycling team’s road, track, and MTB seasons.
The flyer can be found here and you can register here.
At long last, the clothing store is open. This year we have a totally new design inspired by Sun God colors, as well as never-before-offered items such as track jackets, hats, and speedsuits. Whether you’re a racer, recreational rider, or a fan, we have something for you.
Below is the public store link for alumni and general members of the community.
There’s a countdown clock on the top of the page, ignore it. The store will be open at least until Friday, November 15. Still, getting in orders earlier is better, as it makes it easier for us and the people at JL Velo if the orders aren’t all coming in at the last minute.
Turn-around time on the orders has been quoted at 5 weeks. We should expect delivery pretty close to Christmas/New Years.
If you placed a pre-order for the kit during the Spring, don’t worry about placing another order, we’ll take care of it for you. If you’d like additional clothing, however, feel free to go ahead and order it through the online store.
A quick note about the State Champ Editions: These clothing items are for current California State Champions only. We will have to verify your status with the SCNCA before filling orders for those items.
The UCSD Cycling Team is very happy to announce our partnership with UC Cyclery this year. They carry an excellent range of merchandise that will help keep us on the road and outperform the competition in races.
We’re particularly happy that new cyclists who often live on campus and don’t have cars can ride a bike or even walk the short distance from campus to receive expert help.
We also have a few joint events in the works, so stay tuned. Remember to join the team and pay your dues take advantage of this partnership.
We’re proud to announce a new sponsor today. WD-40, known for it’s magic product that unsticks anything, has taken this expertise and branched out into bicycle lube, cleaners, and protectors with WD-40 BIKE.
We have been generously supplied with some products to use. So far we know that the products smell nice. We’ll update with our experiences as we’ve had more time to use the products.
