Mission Statement:

The Fire Velo Cycling Club will be a highly visible national cycling organization that promotes physical and mental wellness in the fire service and partner emergency services by participating in cycling events and charity events across the nation, as well as fundraising to support fire service efforts of cancer awareness, cancer prevention and overall wellness.  Firefighters Riding for Others……….

About Us:

Fire Velo is a fire service-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Our goal is to be a highly visible national cycling organization, participating in rides and charity events throughout the United States. All funds raised through Fire Velo will help provide financial assistance to fire service-based groups and causes. We are first and foremost a cycling club. We are a dedicated group of fire service cyclists who have a passion for cycling and a willingness to share it with others. While our members are primarily active and retired firefighters riding for our fire service families, we accept riders from all walks of life. Fire Velo is open to all levels of riders from beginner to advance riders; weekend riders to racers; roadies to mountain bikers. Some members have over thirty years of riding experience while others have not been on a bike in years. We regularly participate in local and national cycling events. We hope to make these rides a great social event while at the same time bringing focus to many great causes pertaining to the physical and mental wellness of fire service.

At every ride, Fire Velo riders keep the memory of those in our fire service family who have lost the battle to cancer, and ride with the spirit of those who continue the battle.

So I finished my birthday ride, riding my age + 1 to grown on.

Thanks to Martha for riding the first hour today.

Thanks also to Coach Kathy for her guidance in making me a better rider. FastLab in centennial is the place for training and coaching along with PT expert Lee when you need a tuneup. 👍👏💪🚴🇺🇸
