After world-champion triathlete Mike Pigg conducted a clinic in 1990, cycling quickly became the foundation event for an endurance sport program.  Competition was first offered at the 1991 Fall Games in Raleigh, and has now become part of Summer Games.

SONC offers eight different cycling events, offering something for every ability level.  Events range from a 500 meter time trial to a 40 kilometer road race.

  • 500m Time Trial
  • 1k Time Trial
  • 2k Time Trial
  • 5k Time Trial
  • 5k Road Race
  • 10k Road Race
  • 15k Road Race
  • 25k Road Race
  • 40k Road Race

State-level competition has been moved to the SONC Summer Games which take place in Raleigh typically the first weekend in June. Local programs are encouraged to host and attend local invitationals. Check out the cycling sport calendar for upcoming events.
