Collegiate cycling seems to be grown at a rapid rate. Each year, new collegiate cycling programs pop up wth names we’ve never heard of. Lees McRae has been around since the turn of the century, but with bike enthusiasts as school presidents, these private colleges are now throwing cycling into the classroom. Sounds sweet right. Read about Lees McRae’s new Bicycling Studies class now being offered. There’s ski schools, football schools and even basketball factory’s littering the east coast, so it only makes sense that with the rising popularity of cycling, we get cycling specific studies as well.
