Who We Are

WUCA stands for World UtlraCycling Association

Our roots are from the adventures of Ultracycling greats: John Marino, Michael Shermer, and Lon Haldeman. Our original name was UMCA (Ultra Marathon Cycling Association). In 2017 we went through a name change to drop the word “marathon” as that was more associated with running instead of cycling.

Year Rounder

Who is a “Year Rounder” anyway??

It is a rider who consistently rides at least a Century every month of the year.

Starting in 2019 – Addition of Indoor ride divisions using Smart Trainers – all WUCA members play Year Rounder

Rides are categorized in 7 divisions:

  • Organized Long Division
  • Organized Century Division
  • Personal Long Division
  • Personal Century Division
  • Indoor Long Division
  • Indoor Century Division
  • Combined Division

More Specifics about the divisions:

Organized Long Division: Organized rides of >150 miles. You must complete at least 150 miles of the ride to receive credit. You will receive credit for your actual, on-route mileage.

Organized Century Division: Organized rides of >90 and <150 miles. You must complete at least 90 miles of the ride to receive credit. You will receive credit for your actual, on-route mileage.

Personal Long Division: Personal rides of >150 miles documented by receipts, tracking graph, and/or witness verification. For credit, you must complete at least 150 miles in an 18 hour period (and maintain an 8.33 mph average after that).

Personal Century Division: Personal rides of >90 and <150 miles, documented by receipts, tracking graph, and/or witness verification. For credit, you must complete at least 90 miles in an 11 hour period including off the bike time (and maintain an 8.33 mph average after that).

Indoor Long Division: Indoor rides of >150 miles documented by valid electronic rides using Smart-Trainer, and actual power. For credit, you must complete at least 150 miles in an 18 hour period (and maintain an 8.33 mph average after that).

Indoor Century Division: Indoor rides of >90 and <150 miles, documented by valid electronic rides using Smart-Trainer, and actual power. For credit, you must complete at least 90 miles in an 11 hour period including off the bike time (and maintain an 8.33 mph average after that).

Combined Division: Combined mileage from the all 6 Organized, Personal, and Indoor divisions above. Overall Y-R standings are shown in order of Combined Division mileage. However, excelling in a given division (for example, the Organized Long Division) is a worthy goal, and is recognized as such (see below).

Special Note on Indoor rides:

Indoor Division: Any indoor rides of 90 miles or more that are completed on “virtual riding platforms” such as Zwift, Rouvy, or “similar” (with the use of a smart trainer that can register real power output) where actual riding conditions mimic real world in relation to effort and road grade, can be counted for Year Rounder Indoor Rides. Actual Power measurements must be included, and the ride results must be submitted in some format where mileage, distance and avg power are displayed. Note: The only deviation from this rule is that anyone is still allowed to submit 6-hours of indoor riding without power and have it count for the Larry Schwarz award. 6 hours = 100 Miles (just notate that in your submission)

Gold: 3,000 miles or more in the Combined division — award is a personally engraved medallion.

Platinum: 5,000 miles in the Combined division — award is personally engraved medallion.

Note: Starting in 2019, you no longer have to join “Year Rounder” by paying an extra $10 membership fee. Every active WUCA member is automatically enabled to participate in the Year Rounder (YR) Challenge. Any awards that are earned will be available for purchase (for the award maker) after the Challenge is over for that respective calendar year.
