What we're about

Join SBC & GVCC and get more out of cycling both physically and emotionally with a group of passionate cyclists who ride for fun and camaraderie. Get a good work out, maintain a hobby that includes socializing, the outdoors, and share inspiration by riding with a group who love cycling. We aim to bring together those who share our passion for cycling and meeting new people. All levels are welcomed.
GVCC has been a non-profit bicycle club since 1977 supporting bicycling advocacy and giving back to the community either through volunteer work or financial aide to various local agencies. If you’d like to become a member please make a minimum contribution of $25.00 annually. Contributions can be made via YOUR PayPal.com account to presidentgvcc@gmail.com and put 'membership' in the comment section or mail a check to GVCC PO Box 1547, Goleta, Ca 93116. All funds collected will cover the annual meetup costs with the balance going to the Goleta Valley Cycling Club. Your contribution entitles you to full GVCC benefits, discounts at some local bicycle shops, participation in group out of town rides, insurance coverage while on a club ride and a chance to give back to your community. Contributions are per member. ANSI-SNELL approved bicycle helmets are required on all club rides.
