Secrest's 100-mile world record
Michael Secrest broke the 17-year-old 100mi world track record (2011)

Three UMCA members, Steve Abraham (UK), Kurt Searvogel (US) and William Pruett (US) are competing to ride the most miles in a year -- and to break Tommy Godwin's 1939 record of 75,065 miles in a year (365 days)! It's essentially a one-year-time-trial!

It's not too late to join in on the competition! For the rules and current statistics, visit the HAM'R website: hamr.ultracycling.com

Welcome to the home of the UltraMarathon Cycling Association (UMCA), founded in 1980 by John Marino, Michael Shermer, and Lon Haldeman. The UMCA is the leading international organization dedicated to ultracycling. We offer a calendar of ultracycling events where riders can earn points toward placement in the World Cup of UltraCycling, the Ultra-500 Race Series, and mileage toward the UMCA 6, 12 and 24-hour challenges.

The UMCA offers the Year-Rounder Mileage Challenge, which is a year-long bicycle mileage challenge that recognizes consistent performance in ultracycling throughout the season. Participants may earn credit by riding in centuries, double centuries, 12-hour races, 24-hour races, UltraCycling Cup events, and other ultra rides.

The organization also sanctions UltraCycling Records, including national, state, timed and distance records. The UMCA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and welcomes donations and sponsorships to help fund our charitable programs.

The UMCA publishes UltraCycling, our quarterly publication with expert advice on cycling, training, equipment, nutrition, race strategy, and mental preparation. UltraCycling is included with your membership. Read some of our selected SAMPLE ISSUES -- or login and view the CURRENT ISSUE (Winter 2015).

Reprints of articles on training, nutrition and equipment are now available under articles. (If you're looking for older articles they are available in our website archives.)
