ECCC Racers' Guide

Bicycle racing---the greatest, toughest, most beautiful sport! The Eastern Collegiate Cycling Conference puts on a full schedule of year-round cycling action for student athletes, and this page will tell you what you need to know to get involved.

What's the Story?

To race in the ECCC you must be a full-time student at a degree granting college or university, or be a full-time student in a public or private high school or prep school.

The ECCC races year-round, with four separate seasons: Road, Mountain, Track, and Cyclocross.

Riders and teams compete to earn points toward individual and team season standings.

All race weekends feature a number of categories for riders of all levels.

Every racer must have a USA Cycling Collegiate license, and be a member of a licensed school team.

We've got a place for everybody, so join or start your team, buy a license, check out the schedule, and come out racing!
