What we’re about
Founded in 2002, Velo Girls is the premier women's cycling club in the San Francisco bay area. We offer rides, clinics, and events for women (and men) throughout the year. Our members include recreational and competitive road cyclists, mountain bikers, and cyclocrossers, ranging in age from teens to 60s, spanning from Morgan Hill to Mendocino, Half Moon Bay to the east bay.
Velo Girls has been recognized by USA Cycling as Club of the Year in 2003, 2004, 2006, and 2008. We've also been voted Best Bike Club by Competitor Magazine, City Sports Magazine, and the Bay List.
Upcoming events (4+)See all
- Melo Velo beginners' road rideWoodside Town Hall Parking Lot, Woodside, CA
This is a ride for beginners. All women and women-identifying riders are welcome for socializing and support, but this is an easy, beginner, getting-used-to-road-biking ride. Meet at Woodside Town Hall in Woodside. We'll ride north on Canada Road and return -- 15 miles, rolling terrain.
Like all our rides, this ride is led by volunteers. Although this is a beginner level ride, participants should be comfortable with their bike (basic shifting and braking) and should be able to maintain a 10mph pace. While our ride leaders strive to support all riders and some one-on-one is available, depending on the size of the group, it may be impossible for the ride leader to ride with each rider.
