About the Team
The team started as the Spring Creek Velo Club in the late 1970s. In 1980 the club re-formed as the Rocky Mountain Cyclists. In 1982 the club began working in the bike shop located in the Lory Student Center. During the 1984-1985 school year the club once again began to focus on racing.
The CSU Oval Criterium is the most respected road race in Northern Colorado. First held in 1986, it is one of the oldest races in Colorado. Racers travel from all over the state to compete on the Oval at Colorado State University. There are events for Collegiate and USCF (United States Cycling Federation) in all categories from Citizen to Pro. This is a primary fundraiser for the Rams Cycling Team spring racing season.
The Team has a good deal to offer to cyclists of all levels. Group rides take place 3-5 times per week including the famous Wednesday Night Worlds. Throughout the year we invite in guest speakers and host other events. Any CSU student, faculty, or alumni can join us in our weekly rides, though you must be a full-time student to race.
