Inverclyde Velo Breif

Wednesday 13 February 2019 - 16:02:35
Inverclyde Velo members participate in a variety of cycling activities including; road racing, time trials, Sportives and Audax. Whilst road competitive cycling remains a core value of our club, by far the most popular form of cycling amongst our members is cycling for pure pleasure, physical and mental well-being.
Formed in the 1980’s Inverclyde Velo is affiliated to British Cycling and Cycling Time Trials (CTT) which allows members to participate in cycling events throughout the country.

Based in Inverclyde, the club is well placed to offer the local community the chance to get involved and improve their fitness be that purely leisure or towards personal achievement in competitive cycling.
Inverclyde Velo would encourage all cyclist to join British Cycling to ensure they have some sort of 3rd party cover in the event of an accident.
