Sponsor Us

We are seeking sponsors to help us make our sport more accessible to student-athletes in exchange for social media content, brand awareness opportunities, and association with a team that is successful both on and off the bike. If you are interested in sponsorship with Cal Cycling, contact us at contact@cycling.berkeley.edu.

Sponsorship with Cal Cycling is also an opportunity to reach the broader UC-Berkeley community. UC-Berkeley is the number one U.S. public university, with over 30,000 undergraduates and 11,000 graduate students. With top programs across the board, our student body is not only a customer base but also a rich pool of potential recruits for any industry. Our team is no exception; our student-athletes range from undergraduates to PhD students in mechanical engineering, astronomy, and economics. For sponsors wishing to reach the broader cycling community, over 5,500 cyclists commute to UC-Berkeley daily.

Our team is highly competitive in both road and mountain competition. In 2019 alone, our team’s success included:

  • 3rd: USA Cycling Collegiate Nationals Criterium (W)

Our list of alumni includes Katie Hall, a professional cyclist member of the top-level Boels–Dolmans cycling team and winner of the 2018 AMGEN Tour of California.
