The U.K. has a rich tradition of cycling excellence, winning more Olympic Gold, Silver and Bronze medals than any other nation. Some of the greatest names in U.K. cycling history such as Sir Chris Hoy and Victoria Pendleton have competed in U.K. university cycling events during their student days before becoming full-time cyclists.
Cycling at university is open to students of all levels of experience. Clubs throughout the U.K. will regularly welcome new members and some may even have access to club bikes, allowing those who do not have their own bike the opportunity to get involved. Whether you are looking for a social cycling experience or the chance to compete against some of the best U.K. university cyclists in your discipline, cycling at university can offer something for students of all ambitions.
