Velo Girls was founded in March, 2002 by Lorri Lee Lown, a San Francisco Bay Area cyclist. The club is a place where women and girls can share their love for cycling in a safe, friendly, encouraging environment.
The club focuses on fun, recreational riding, with the opportunity to attend cycling skills and general fitness clinics to improve riding and overall fitness. There are scheduled rides for all level of riders from beginners, recreational riders, and racers. We number almost 250 members from throughout the greater Bay Area, including San Francisco, North Bay, East Bay, Silicon Valley, the coast, and the Peninsula. Our online community numbers over 1,000 women cyclists and is an incredible resource.
We offer rides and events every single day of year, including road rides for all levels, mountain bike trail rides, cyclocross training, and lots of fun!
Velo Girls takes an entirely new approach to the team
concept. Expanding our current program to include road, mountain, and cyclocross racers, along with endurance riders, Team Velo Girls
™ will be active in all aspects of riding and racing in Northern California. Team members approach the sport with a love of cycling and the desire to be active with Velo Girls™ and the cycling community as a whole.
