Nicholls State Cycling races under USA Cycling’s Collegiate Cycling Program and are part of the South Central Collegiate Cycling Conference. We race against clubs at other universities such as LSU, Tulane, the University of Texas-Austin, Texas A&M, Baylor, Texas Tech, the University of Houston, and the University of Oklahoma.
Our goal is to introduce students and the rest of the Nicholls community to the sport of bicycle riding and racing. We do so in a supportive and safe manner, teaching our members how to ride safely and competitively. The club is currently focused on road racing–road races, criteriums, and time trials, but the Collegiate Cycling season includes mountain bike, track, and cyclocross events as well. The club also participates in various non-competitive charity bike rides and events throughout the year.
All students–undergraduate and graduate are invited to ride and race with Nicholls State Cycling. Faculty and staff are invited to ride with Nicholls State Cycling. Club members not only engage in a life long fitness activity, but also learn valuable organizing and goal setting skills that will serve them well through out their lives.
Students need a bicycle (road bike preferred), a helmet, bicycle shorts, and a few other inexpensive items. The club and its members can help prospective members in selecting the proper equipment.
