The future of our club:
The Copper Country Cycling Club at Michigan Tech is at an important point in our development. Membership has been on the rise (over 100 members), as well as participation in both competitive racing and fun club trips to places like Marquette and even Moab!
With this exciting growth comes new opportunities to expand our involvement in the community and within the organization. To help us make the most of our potential, please consider donating as you are able. We are truly appreciative of everyone who has supported us.
Any contributions to the Copper Country Cycling Club would be greatly appreciated and would have a great impact on our club. All donations are tax-deductible and can be sent to:
Copper Country Cycling Club
1400 Townsend Dr., MUB 106
Houghton, MI 49931-1295
Please make checks payable to “Copper Country Cycling Club” and be sure to let executive board members know (see this page for their contact info). If your employer participates in donation matches, please let us know to look for that as well!
If you would like your contribution to be applied to a specific area, let us know! We’ll try our best to apply your donation where you’d like it to go.
How Donations are Used:
Copper Country Cycling Club has hosted multiple official USA Cycling events in the Midwest Collegiate Cycling Conference (MWCCC). Hosting these events costs money, sometimes including the rebuilding of trails like the dual slalom. Also, traveling for races outside of the Upper Peninsula and for National races is not cheap, so we look for all the assistance we can get to support our racers!
Every semester we plan several fun trips, whether spending a weekend at Ray’s Mountain Bike Park or heading out West for spring break. We would like to be able to provide these opportunities to more of our members by adding new trips and covering all expenses for members.
Tools and Equipment
Our room at the Nordic Waxing Center contains a variety of tools for students to maintain and repair their bikes. We are hoping to replace worn-out tools, as well as acquire a wheel truing stand and a pump. Other miscellaneous equipment we provide includes cyclocross barriers and tools for trail building and maintenance.
Be it jerseys or t-shirts, we like to sport C4 around campus and out on the trail!
We would be honored to recognize those who help support us. Please don’t hesitate to contact us!
