About Us

The Albany High School Cougars is a  racing team which represents the East Bay city of Albany, California. We participate in the Norcal Cycling League, South Conference, and are part of NICA (National Interscholastic Cycling Association). Our favorite places to ride include Tilden Park, Mount Tamalpais, China Camp, and the Bay Trail. Riders of all levels are welcome on the team; there are no try-outs and all participants are able to race. The team also has loaner bikes for riders who may not be able or willing to purchase their own bike during the first season.

The team’s existence is made possible by generous contributions of time and money from many in the Albany community. All of our coaches are volunteers and the team receives generous contributions from a number of sponsors. In addition, parents and guardians of the team’s riders donate their time by driving riders and assisting in race activities. If you are interested in the team, contact coach John Culp (whose email address is in the right sidebar) and keep your eyes out for notifications in the beginning of the school year.
