What is USA Triple Crown?

U.S.A. Triple Crown is a group of cyclists who have completed three or more double centuries in three or more States, in one year, and therefore have earned the right to become a member of the U.S.A. TC fellowship of cyclists.

If you want California Triple Crown ride credit, which is a separate prestigious distinction, you need to register through the California Triple Crown registered rides.

We do not compete with CTC. This is a separate entity. We fully support California Triple Crown! The purpose for U.S.A. Triple Crown is for Double Century Ride Credit for those outside California, but also includes California. Some States will not be able to put on a fully supported Double starting out, and so if riders design and complete a Double Century, they will be give full ride credit if they send in their strava and a brief ride report with pictures.
