Welcome Back!

Welcome back everyone! We hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving break and are ready to burn off some of that turkey on the upcoming training rides! There are only two social and two tempo rides left this semester, so be sure to come out! The Friday social ride is now at 4:00PM at the Wilcox house and the Sunday group ride is still 10AM for the women and 10:30AM for the men at the Sample Gates.
If you would still like to sign waivers, pay dues, or purchase IUCC clothing, please e-mail us and we can set up a time to meet with you and get everything squared away before the end of the semester.
Finally, here is a message to all of IUCC and the Bloomington cycling community from the Bicycle Steering Committee at the IU Office of Sustainability:
Do you want to make biking better at IU? The Bicycle Steering Committee is Indiana University's first official task force specifically created to implement campus-wide bicycle initiatives. The committee is comprised of highly capable students, facul…

Training Schedule, GU Order, and Meeting!

There is a chill in the air and that means only one thing: It's time for the weekly practice rides to begin! We will be offering two rides a week: one social and one training. The social ride will be every Friday unless mentioned otherwise, at the Wilcox House at 4:30PM. This ride will be combined with the weekly Little 500 group ride and will provide an opportunity to get to know your teammates over some easy social miles. There will be a short route option and a long route option each week to accommodate any ride needs you may have for that day.
The second ride we'll offer is a weekly training ride that will range from solid tempo work to all out racing. This ride will take place every Sunday, rolling out from the Sample Gates at 10:30AM and will range in duration from 2.5-4 hours depending on the route and workout. The schedule for the Sunday ride can be found under the member resources page. Both rides will be starting this week (11/4 and 11/6)! So come on out and start tr…
