About us


Cycle University was started with the idea that no matter how you ride, you deserve the best coaching and advice to improve.  Without attitude, without fancy jargon, with proven step-by-step methods to teach skills and improve fitness.  We have been riding and coaching  since 1986 and have been obsessed with finding ways to make the best training of elite cycling available to any rider willing to listen.

Head Coach Craig Undem became enamored with the bicycle in 1983 in Seattle and has spent his life focused on mastering cycling skills and teaching them to others.  He has raced at the elite/world class level in Road, Mountain biking and Cyclocross and been an elite coach to some of the best riders in the world since 1997 when he retired from professional level riding.
Craig and our staff of Coaches deliver Team Coaching for RAD powered by Cycle U Junior team, as well as indoor and outdoor classes for adults including Bicycle Fitting and Coaching Consultations.

Our indoor Classes are October – April at our West Seattle Studio where you bring your own bike and ride to improve fitness and technique.  We also offer private lessons and coaching year around on a wide variety of topics ranging from How-to-Ride-for-the-First-Time for adults and children, tackling the hardest and hilliest centuries in the U.S. to racing and dominating local or national events.  We are also expert bike fitters and mechanics working to optimize your bike to your chosen goal.
