COLLEGIATE & HIGH SCHOOL RACE WEEKEND
The tenth edition of the Philly Phlyer race weekend is coming up! March 21st and 22nd, 2015 will feature for yet another year hundreds of collegiate, high school, and open riders competing in the most ambitious amateur cycling race held in Philadelphia. Don’t miss out!
The Philly Phlyer
The Philly Phlyer is part of the Eastern Collegiate Cycling Conference’s spring road racing season. Started in 2006, the race is currently the longest continuously held event on the ECCC calendar. It also holds the national title for the most collegiate racers ever, with 535+ competing in 2007. Every edition of the race has featured a wonderful circuit race course as well as team and individual time trials in West Fairmount Park, around the Memorial Hall area and all along the Schuylkill River, and up the Strawberry Mansion Bridge/Ford Road climb for the circuit race. In recent years the second day has featured an exciting, high speed criterium right in the heart of the Temple University campus.
Although the event focuses on collegiate and high school racing, there are several fields available for other racers as well. Check out the race flyer for details. Note that our Women’s Intro field is open to all new women’s racers—collegiate, highschool, or otherwise!
All racers must have a valid annual or 1-day USA Cycling license, available for at usacycling.org or on-site at the races. Only proper road bicycles are permitted (freehub, two brakes, drop bars, etc.), and certified helmets are required. Race registration is via BikeReg or on-site (additional fees may apply).
Our courses are all very ambitious and in busy areas, so they require a substantial number of course marshals throughout each day. If you are able and interested to help ensure the safety of all our participants and to keep a great event with a superb safety record going, please sign up to volunteer. Thank you!
