Join

Joining the club is easy!

To attend official club events, just sign up for Cycling on MIT Club Sports’ website and fill out all the required forms. Having an active account (and signed waivers!) on this page will allow you to join team sponsored activities such as clinics, training camps, and races.  If you simply want to ride casually with the team, you do not need to sign a waiver.  The best way to find out about rides is through our mailing list (follow link to sign up!).

For the schedule of official club events, see the Calendar. Anyone attending these events must sign a waiver and have an account on DoSportsEasy as explained above. All other rides and events advertised through the listservs are not official club events, and are not organized, supported, or endorsed in any way by the MIT cycling team*. Please email cycling-all-officers@mit.edu to propose official events.

* Riders wearing team kit, regardless of whether they are attending an official club event, represent the club to the community. Please remember to obey traffic laws and ride with courtesy at all times, and especially when wearing team kit.

Clearly, riding with us will make you want more! If you want access to perks such as participating in coached skills clinics, awesome discounts on our team’s cycling kit and sponsorship deals, and, of course, racing privileges, consider becoming a member (feel free to start basic – you can always upgrade to a higher level at any point in the season by paying the difference in dues – sorry, we cannot do refunds, though):

Basic Club Membership: $50
  •  Allows the member access to training plans.
  • Access to selected*** sponsorship deals.
  • Gives a membership discount on clothing orders for current MIT affiliates.
  •  Allows current MIT affiliates* to attend one race weekend** (i.e., two days of racing) annually, in any discipline, to try out the sport (with the club paying for entry fees, rental cars, and hotels).
3 Race Weekends**: $150
  • Allows the member access to training plans.
  • Allows the member access to all applicable*** sponsorship deals.
  • Gives the member access to the MIT Cycling Balcony, a secure area with a multitude of bike tools, trainers, rollers, and a TV to train indoors in the winter.
  • Authorizes current MIT affiliates* to race up to three club-sponsored race weekends (i.e., six days of racing) annually spread throughout any of the race disciplines (with the club paying for entry fees, rental cars, and hotels).
  • Requires that the member helps out with team jobs, including club-led rides (leading at least two rides during spring and fall), logistics planning, volunteering for team events, and holding officer positions.
6 Race Weekends**: $300
  • In addition to the above increases the number of club-sponsored race days in which a current MIT affiliate* can participate to 6 race weekends (i.e., 12 days of racing).
  • Gives the opportunity to compete for spots to race at collegiate nationals.
  • In the instance where the rider would like to enter a non club-sponsored event, the rider may write a proposal to the officers to request funding. The officers may vote to fund the request if the race is consistent with the club’s mission.

 

Additional race-days can be added on at a cost of $150 per three weekends. Single-weekend upgrades (at $50 per weekend) can be purchased only by 6+ weekend members.

 

* Only current undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to race in collegiate races. Non-student, MIT affiliated members who are not eligible to participate in club sponsored events may request to attend a weekend that includes open races. These members are expected to pay their share of the cost back to the club.
** Single-day races count as a half-weekend.
*** Some sponsorship deals are applicable only to MIT affiliates. Sponsors have ultimate decision on who has access to specific deals.
