GU Cycling

In Spokane we have a few racing teams, like Baddlands and Emde Sports, and a few shop supported teams like Rocket Velo and Vertical Earth (not to mention Team Two Wheel), and we even have a godfather of bike blogging in John Speare, but we only have one collegiate cycling team - the Gonzaga University Cycling Club.

They are a group of GU students who like to ride their bikes, who ride mountain bikes and who race in the collegiate series. As you can imagine, even when you are used to living like a college student (oh look! half racks and top ramen on sale!), it still takes a fair amount of cabbage to get a bunch of racers around the Pacific Northwest to a bunch of races. These folks race in a series with these colleges: Central Washington University, Gonzaga University, Montana State University, Portland State University, Oregon State University, University of Idaho, University of Montana, University of Oregon, University of Washington, Walla Walla College, Washington State University, Western Washington University, and Whitman College. That means that most of the time they have quite a drive, vehicle expenses, food and lodging expenses and race fees all to consider.

So, to support their efforts they have solicited sponsorships and are selling t-shirts on campus and online here: The t-shirts are very cool and it is only $15 to get one shipped to you.

Check out their website here, Gonzaga University Cycling Club, and then go HERE and buy a t-shirt to support these student-racers.
