International Union of Cycloclimbers

Since September 21, 2002 the INTERNETIONAL UNION OF CYCLOCLIMBERS is a reality.
Our associations was founded to provide a new opportunities to aggregations for cyclists who choose to go uphill free and without constraints. Our guiding principles is very simple:
- Believe in cycling in total freedom, without age limits and conditionings
- The search for the new pass will not be a source of exasperation and unpleasant and unnecessary discussions, but a pretext and stimulus for new targets.
- Our aim is to establish a group of people, possibly friends, whit “real intention cycling” and we want to cycle for pleasure go together, avoiding any kind of competition. The agonist and those who consider themselves “race” or worse still those who consider the bicycle as a tool to assert their superiority, is not welcome in our Club.
- We will avoid classifications developed based on the number of passes climbed. Our associates lists appear only strictly in order alphabetical achieve, the new climb should be a personal satisfaction.
- Our main goal will be to foster the organization of outings, meetings, of course, always travels by bicycle; pride will promote cycling activities, while respectful of the prerequisites basis of our aggregation (going uphill), is available to all members.
