The aim of the study to find out the Psychological parameters: locus of control, communal tension and stress of cyclists in competitive situations. In the present research, the sample included 184 cyclists (96 males (48 and 48 divided into two levels) & 88 females (44 and 44 divided into two levels)) female cyclists of inter university and national level, of age group 18–25 years. This sample of cyclists was drawn randomly from various educational and sports institutes, which included colleges, universities, sports academies and organizations.

Joshi, 1985, Comprehensive Scale of Tension (Rajeevlochan Bhardwaj, 1985) and Stress Scale ‘SS-LVNS’ (Hindi version by Dr. Vijaya Lakshmi & Dr. Shruti Narain, 2014). After collecting the data t test was applied and the level of significance set at 0.05.

The results powerfully prove that, significant differences were observed in Locus of Control & Communal Tension and Stress parameter in female cyclists
