Who are we?

We’re the guy next door with the 20 year old cruiser. We’re the lady down the street that never actually drives a car. We’re also the families taking a spin in the park or heading to school and the guy that can’t wait to get home and put 50 miles on before dinner. We are a group of individuals that want to promote bicycling as safe, fun, exciting, addicting, a great form of transportation, environmentally friendly and a great way to meet new friends. We’re also a non profit organization that will use our strength in numbers to benefit our members and communities.

Membership

The members of MiCo VELO  are what makes the club special.  If you are ready to experience what the Miami County Velo Cycling Club has to offer sign up today.

Membership is open to any person that considers themselves a cyclist or would like to become a cyclist. We define a cyclist as anyone that enjoys time in the saddle of their trusty bike.  Doesn’t matter how far, how long, how fast or how skilled you are, if you ride a bike, we want you to be a part of us. Even if you don’t ride but would like to see things become a little more bicycle friendly, we want you.

Mission

The mission of MiCo Velo Cycling Club is to promote bicycling as a sport, a healthy alternative means of transportation, a safe and fun way to exercise in all of Miami County and it’s communities.

Meetings

The club will try and host at least one annual meeting and social to go through the previous year’s activities and talk about the future. More meetings will be scheduled depending on member interest.  Check out the Calendar for our next meeting.  Also, you may review the minutes of our past meetings.

Club Rides

It is our goal to establish scheduled group rides that will satisfy your on-road and/or off-road desires.  Of course, prospective rides need leaders and participants.  If you would like to see a ride at a particular time or place, let us know and we’ll put it on the calendar.

As well as weekly rides, the club promotes several events a year for members and non-members alike.
If there is enough interest, we’ll host training rides as well for those that are new to cycling or even those that would like to brush up on their skills!

Race Team

Maybe one of these days we’ll have a race team. For now, let us know if you’d be interested in competing for MiCo Velo Cycling.

Board of Directors

Our Board of Directors meets once a month, usually on the first Sunday of the month. Meetings are open to all members. We will try and post location and time for anyone interested. We usually try and ride before each meeting as well.
