This club's genesis was in 1975, along with the
organization of the Carolina Cup. The Greensboro Velo Club was formed to house the race team and the Cup event.
This club has grown to be one of the most active bike clubs in North Carolina, involved
all aspects of community cycling; including recreational, commuting,
touring, trail riding, road, track, mountain and cyclocross racing.
While we have had great talent and success with National and North
Carolina champions, the focus and intent has been to encourage local
riders and provide them an avenue to better enjoy bicycling.
