Lucia Deng Bio 200x200


At-Large Representative

By day, Lucia is a corporate transactional attorney specializing in healthcare technology. Her second career and primary passion is bikes -- of all varieties. She has been racing bikes as an amateur for almost a decade, primarily on the road, but has also raced cyclocross, track, gravel, and mountain bikes. Lucia loves reading a race and executing team tactics, as much as the post race coffee/snax hang. When not racing, Lucia loves riding with her CRCA/To Be Determined teammates, taking her CX bike out to explore gravel and singletrack, or working on technical skills on the rockiest terrain the East Coast has to offer.

Lucia has served on the Board of Directors of Century Road Club Association (CRCA), one of USA Cycling's largest clubs, for several years, and most recently as its President. She served as Women's Rep and NYC Rep & Upgrade Coordinator for the New York State Bicycle Racing Association (NYSBRA) for many years. Prior to her life as a bike racer, Lucia was an active member and ride leader for New York Cycle Club (NYCC), one of the country's largest recreational cycling clubs. The thing that keeps her coming back to bike racing year after year is the community.

Lucia is a lifelong New Yorker, with a brief stint in Boston, and currently resides in the Bronx with her two feline roommates, Alex and Bailey
