The NAU Cycling Team
The Northern Arizona University Cycling Club is Arizona's largest collegiate cycling organization. Reaching over 120 active students, the club also maintains a smaller 30-person cycling team dedicated to traveling to racing events. We compete in many disciplines, including Dual Slalom, Cross Country, short track, road, and downhill spanning small local races to national competitions.
YOUR Support will help us reach our 2023 Goals
We want our club to be inclusive and accessible, so in our 2023 season, we hope to boost local participation and increase sport participation in all ages and genders. Additionally, we hope to compete in national competitions again, and YOUR donation will support the costs of hosting, traveling, and competing in those events.
After a fantastic debut back to collegiate racing in 2021, our team returned hungry for results for the 2022 season. With significant growth in our men's and women's endurance teams, as well as a higher competition level in our gravity team, we were able to not only secure 6th place as a club in the Collegiate National Championships but also secure podium and championship placements in Women's cross country and short track, and team relay divisions.
Locally, the NAU Cycling Club secured wins at state competitions to secure 1st place in the Southwest Conference, with racers Braeden Sellinger and Lauren Aggler winning the men's and women's conference in cross country and short track.
Through the support of sponsors and generous donations from our 2022 fundraiser, the club could also host the Sunrise Peak Scramble, an all-event mountain bike race at Sunrise Park Resort. With excellent turnout and increased interest, the Sunrise Peak Scramble will return for its second year this September!
With the success of last year, the NAU Cycling team has grown! However, with the growth, we are also experiencing increased club expenses. To remain inclusive and provide equitable resources for team members, we are once again raising money to support these efforts. Additionally, the 2023 Collegiate National Championships will likely occur on the East Coast this year, which is another increase to competition fees.
Gifts of any size go a long way in creating opportunities for Lumberjacks on the 2023 NAU Cycling Team to support each other and achieve our team goals.
We greatly appreciate your support of our organization. If you would like to see more of the NAU Cycling Team, visit our website.
In cycling, a Soigneur is a person who gives nutrition, massage, and other assistance to a team, especially during a race. A gift of $20 will cover meals for one rider during a race.
Racing can be pricey! A $50 gift will provide a rider with one race entry.
A gift of $100 supports the NAU Cycling inclusivity initiative. These extra funds will go towards making the sport we love more accessible to all students.
Some heavy hitting support! A donation of $200 would be enough for one racer's plane ticket to an East Coast race.
There are few professional bike mechanics, yet they make massive contributions to the sport! Through this contribution you are making a massive contribution. Those who donate this amount will receive an NAU Cycling jersey thanking you for your support.
