Students who are interested in cycling, but have been too nervous to try, have a new option at the University Recreation Center.

Alice Carter, director of advancement research, created a beginner’s cycling class because she said she wanted to remove the stigma associated with advanced cycling classes.

“I hope that we can remove the intimidation,” Carter said. “We could progress as a group, we could start very easy and each week gets a little bit harder.”

The class is offered Mondays and Wednesdays at 12:30 p.m. in the cycling studio at the Rec Center.
