Find a Sports Club



Come and visit us at the freshers fairs at the start of term!

  • We will be at Oadby on 27th September and in the Percy Gee building on 28th September. 

About Us:

Here at Leicester University Cycling Team we are a group of likeminded riders who enjoy riding, racing and socialising together. We are looking to grow our team on and off the bike, creating an inclusive club that everyone can be a part of with regular group rides, socials and trips away.


We offer organised rides on mondays, wednesdays and saturdays. On mondays we have sessions on a closed circuit, away from traffic, at new college. These are ideal for anything from gaining confidence riding in a group to running training sessions. This year, on wednesdays we have two rides going out at different paces. The faster group will often develop into a chaingang. On saturdays we run longer cafe rides. Our rides usually start from Victoria Park between the Attenborough Building and Charles Wilson Building.

Here at LUCT we also want to support those who wish to race. Currently we enter riders into BUCS hill climb, timetrials and road race. Our members also race in British Cycling cyclocross races as well as crits and road races. As a club we support and encourage riders who want to race or get into racing, however, racing is not a requirement of riding in the club!

For riders looking to get into racing for the first time cyclocross is a really accessible part of cycling and as a team we want to be able to help as many people get into racing as possible. A cyclocross season generally runs from september to february and there are plenty of local races that are suitible for someone just getting into it, as well as more experienced racers. 


Being part of LUCT isnt all about cycling though! We also have a very strong social scene, there are plenty of drinking and non drinking socials throughout the year. Like most sports societies we hold socials on wednesday nights after training and then meet up with everyone else in the O2 later on. We also have an alumni christmas dinner as well as a summer garden party and awards evening.

As well as this we organise trips away, for example we have prieviously gone on a trip to the yorkshire dales, bikepacking in the peakdistrict and on a trip to watch the world championships.
