So if you aren’t into the racing and just want someone to ride with, be assured, you aren’t alone! I am an officer and that’s is pretty much all I want to do! Racing is just another perk of being on this amazing team! I am very excited for the upcoming journey with the team, especially, the long car rides, early morning wake-up calls, and many more. Come join us and you will not regret it!

Hello! My name is David Berry. I am a second year undeclared student here at UCSD. Cycling has been a passion of mine since I started college and it has completely changed my life. I love getting out and meeting new people, finding a great new climb, and generally just having a good time on, and off, the bike. If you’re looking to get more involved with our team, meeting new people to ride with, or if you just have general questions about the team feel free to shoot me an email!

Name: Eric Geier

Known Aliases: “Big Cranberry”

Contact: clothing at ucsdcycling dot org

About: This is Eric’s third year with UCSD Cycling and he continues to ride mostly to support his pie-eating habits.  If you see a group of UCSD Cyclists waiting at the top of Torrey Pines, keep an eye out and you may spot him struggling up a few minutes behind.  Eric is an M.D/Ph.D student and the team clothing manager.  He’d like to take credit for the eye-catching 2014 kit design, but his role in the design process was proportional to his creative aptitude, which is to say rather minimal.  Please feel free to contact Eric with any questions regarding clothing or Vin Diesel movies.

Women's CaptainWomen’s Road Captain

Name: Stacy Le

Contact: road.captain at ucsdcycling dot org

About: Hey everyone! I’m Stacy and am currently in my second year studying chemical engineering. Cycling has been a huge part of my life growing up. As much as I enjoy racing, I simply love the feeling of the open road, clarity, and the pain cycling gives even more. As they always say, “Climbing gives pain for the legs but clarity for the mind.” For me, cycling isn’t just about the racing and riding though; it’s about the people you’ll meet along the way. This team is a family, and I hope that anyone who has the slightest bit of thought of joining the team reaches out to any one of the officers or members. We’d love to meet you and have you join the team. Ride on!

Name: Spencer Schiveley

Contact: road.captain at ucsdcycling dot org

About: I am in my 3rd year with UCSD Cycling and 1st as Men’s Road Captain. I love punchy roads, coffee… black, and scowling despite my fuzzy demeanor. You may often hear me waxing poetic about Bohemia and wishing I could find a decent Czech pilsner anywhere else in the world… like where I have citizenship.

If you’d like to hear one of my patented rants or just have a question about the team, don’t hesitate to email me!

UCSD_LSSkin_CalChamp Track Captain

Name: Todd Woodlan

Known Aliases: “?”

Contact: track.captain at ucsdcycling dot org

About: Todd has been on the team for five years, not because he’s a failure but because he’s a graduate student. As track captain, he attempts to lure the roadies away from long rides, derailleurs, and salads toward a more fulfilling life comprised of races under 4k, fixed gears, and cookies. He will also take credit for the kit design, since Eric won’t. If you’re already a devout trackie or interested in picking up the highly sought-after skill of riding really fast in tiny circles, send him an email.

 

Website and Social MediaWebsite and Social Media

Name: Ian MacNeill

Contact: digital.media at ucsdcycling dot org

About: Ian spends most of his time sitting in a rocking chair on the porch and commenting about the various “things” being done by “kids these days.” He believes that the proper way to send a message is via telegraph or carrier pigeon, the original e-mail and twitter. There was a time when Facebook didn’t let users upload photos, and he remembers that time fondly. The team apparently didn’t realize that he ran for the Digital Media officers position as a joke.

When not accusing people of being witches for contradicting him with “science” and “math,” Ian can be found on the San Diego Velodrome. He eschews derailleurs as “dark sorcery” and shuns races longer than a minute and a half. He thinks that pie is “race fuel” and often just plain “life fuel,” and he occasionally rides a road bike to support his donut habit. Stop by the velodrome some time to say hi, and be prepared for a lecture.
