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.
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 from September-November, and then April-May, with three separate seasons: Mountain, Cyclocross,and Road.
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.
