Road Warriors! – Missouri State University Cycling Team

Come be a part of the MSU Road Warriors!  This team trains for about 6 months and some choose to ride in the MS Ozarks Bike Ride in September (check out their MSU Road Warriors Bike MS Team Page!).  Last September, the team raised over $2,000 for the MS Society.  Join the team and have a great semester of cycling!  There will be lots of opportunities to participate in group rides as well as indoor cycling classes specific for this group!

Private Road Warriors riding sessions will be offered on Wednesdays from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. in the Foster Recreation Center.  Sessions begin March 1 and will continue throughout the spring semester.  Cost to participate in the private sessions is $20 and also non-credit fee waiver eligible.  You do not have to be a member of Foster Recreation to participate.

Register for indoor team classes using the new Learning Management System:
– Login at My Missouri State.
– Go to the “Profile” tab.
– Click “My Learning Connection” under the Professional Development section.
– Once there, type Road Warriors into the search box at the upper right of the screen.
