The Confédération Africaine de Cyclisme (English African Cycling Confederation , abbreviated to CAC ) is the umbrella organization for cycling in Africa . It is one of five continental associations of the World Cycling Association Union Cycliste Internationale and comprises 49 national associations (as of 2017) . The head office is identical to the seat of the Egyptian Cycling Federation and is located in Cairo . The African cycling association was founded in January 1973 after the 2nd Africa Games in the then Nigerian capital Lagos .

One of the main tasks of the association is the organization of the continental championships in the different cycling disciplines. The African championships in road cycling have been held since 2005, the mountain bike African championships have existed since 2007, the BMX African championships since 2014 and the African championships in track cycling since 2015.

In March 2019 the CAC had a historic premiere: its 9th General Assembly took place in Rome together with the 32nd General Assembly of the European Union Européenne de Cyclisme (UEC) . 44 representatives from a total of 50 European federations and 37 of the 52 African federations took part in the congress. The aim, also for geographical reasons, is to strengthen cooperation between the associations in the future. The delegates were received by Pope Francis .
