Each year, our team hosts a variety of races in order to raise funds, participate in our local collegiate conference, and celebrate the sport of cycling. As each race approaches, we’ll post a flyer with more information on this page. You can register for races (and purchase a collegiate/non-collegiate license) on USACycling.org.
UCSB Cowpie Classic
Our first home race of the year, the Cowpie Classic is our mountain bike race that we host for both collegiate and non-collegiate racers (Flyer). This year’s race will be on October 19th-20th at Chamberlin Ranch in Santa Ynez, California.
Poor College Kids
Usually held at the end January, PCK Road Race is our first home race of the year. The course is a beautiful out-and back road with about 2,600 feet of climbing, located in the Santa Ynez valley. We offer races for collegiate and non-collegiate men and women riders (Last year’s race flyer).
Island View Classic
Enjoy racing criteriums? Come race the Island View Classic! Located in our home town of Goleta, the IV Classic is a 0.65 mile D-shaped course for collegiate riders. The race takes place every year in March. Collegiate results count towards standings in the Western Collegiate Cycling Conference.

Also counting towards the WCCC, the Sisquoc Road Race takes place in Sisquoc, CA. It is a 10 mile loop with a 3% grade climb in the middle. Teams are also welcome to race the TTT, which takes place before the road races. Sisquoc is usually held in early March.
