Velocity Cycling Club is an Edmonton based cycling club that was founded in 1981 by Joe Zombor – the original owner of the Velo City Cycling Shop. During its infancy, the club was primarily a racing team with an emphasis on road and track racing; however, over the years the club has broadened its focus to include BMX, cyclocross, and triathlon. We have a group of dedicated, enthusiastic volunteers on our executive. Our goal is to have a cohesive, team-oriented club with an undying penchant for the big ring.
Velocity is committed to promoting the sport of cycling at all levels and abilities and hosts several well attended events throughout the year including: the Velocity Stage Race, the annual Harvest Ride and now the Velocicross; various BMX and road skills camps, and winter spin class sessions. We participate in Alberta Bicycle Association sanctioned races throughout the province as well as the local Tuesday Night Race Series and Master’s Racing Series (for members 30 years of age or older). Additionally, we are members of the Argyll Velodrome Association and Edmonton BMX Association with provides members with access to the local velodrome and BMX tracks throughout the riding season.
