The World UltraCycling Association is the leading international organization dedicated to ultracycling. The WUCA governs and certifies record attempts in several categories, including cross-country, cross-state/province as well as fixed-distance attempts (100 miles, 200 miles, 1,000 km) and fixed-time attempts (6 hours, 12 hours, 24 hours). Also, the WUCA governs and certifies attempts in two categories called HAMR (Highest Annual Mileage Ridden) and 100,000 Miles, both recognized by Guinness World Records.
