While social rides and trips take up a large amount of our time, EUCC are also passionate about racing.
2017/18 Race Development Program
For 2017/18 we are launching the EUCC Race Development Program which will subsidise race entry fees for club members in target races across multiple disciplines. The full calendar is yet to be revealed but dates will be added below as they are known.
Scottish Student Sport qualifying races will be subsidised at 40% of the entry fee and the other supported races, that the committee have decided on, will be funded at 30% of the entry fee. Transport will also be arranged to each event.

Ranked #7 in BUCS Cycling 2016-17
Part of the success which made Edinburgh University 3rd in BUCS 2016-17
The BUCS Cycling League contains races of all disciplines against riders from universities all over Britain. EUCC consistently have one of the biggest presences at the races while also performing to the highest standards. We’re hoping for bigger and better this coming year, and you could help us acheive our goal.
BUCS events in which we compete:
- Downhill Mountain Bike
- Road Time Trials and Races
Many of us take part in other events throughout the year that are Scottish or National Level at various disciplines. It’s common for groups from the club to travel together or share accommodation in order to take part in an event away from home. Recently the Scottish Enduro Series (MTB) has become popular for members to organise a group trip to these events. Local road racing events are well attended and appearances at Track League at the Glasgow Velodrome for EUCC has become a more regular activity.
Needless to say the competitions aren’t always about winning. These events are great social gatherings that are more often than not a good excuse to spend the weekend riding your bike with friends!
