St. Augustine’s University, a private liberal arts college in Raleigh, NC is doing something big. In May of 2020, it became the first Historically Black College or University (HBCU) in the United States to formally establish a competitive cycling program. The Falcons will compete in USA Cycling’s Atlantic division, which includes powerhouses like Duke, NC State and Wake Forest. The St. Augustine’s University Cycling Team is on a mission to change the perception of cycling as a predominantly white sport.
