GVC was begun in 1975,
along with the start 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.
The GVC team for
2018 will continue the tradition of being open to all interested potential
racers. You are invited
to be part of this team!
There are no preset qualifications or level of athleticism, any
cycling enthusiast living within a 50 mile radius of Greensboro is
eligible. He/she only needs the desire to participate and to be part
of the team.
There is a special
