The Cycling Club is all about experiencing the simple joy that comes from riding a bicycle. The club exists to provide interested male and female students, faculty, staff and community members an outlet for our shared cycling passion. We are a club open to both men and women of all skill levels and abilities. You must have your own bike as well as a helmet.
As a club, we offer group road bike rides that vary from 15 to 30 miles and 15 - 25 mph as well as relaxed fun rides. A single-track mountain bike trail was built by the club and is located just 1.5 miles off campus for beginner and advanced mountain bikers. In addition, the Upland community is in process of creating trails that will link with the Cardinal Greenway, a trail spanning much of eastern Indiana.
The newest opportunity within the club is bike polo, played seasonally, two nights each week. We also provide repair days for students and community members who need help with their bicycle repairs.
Club members participate in local group rides, assist with club events, and attend club meetings. The only requirement is to own a bicycle and helmet. Although not a member of any formal cycling association, student club members have occasionally raced in regional, collegiate-level competitions.
Taylor faculty and staff members oversee the club. To learn more, contact Mike Saunier.
