The generous folk at Team GP VeloTek power regional Rides.
Ever notice how most runners don’t smile when they run? And cyclist are gabbing, smiling and chatting when they ride and even race? The social aspect courtesy of drafting is one of the best parts of cycling. As you get into cycling you’ll notice that you’ll hang around cyclist more and more. You will have more energy, your clothes will seem oversized, you’ll fantasy about riding and not driving your car. Strange things happen when you pedal your bike. Pedal in a group and even greater things are possible.
Maybe you’ll start shaving your legs and wear spandex, maybe your bike will have no gears or brakes and you’ll wear wool. Maybe you’ll ride to work in work clothes and save money, your health, and the world?! It doesn’t matter, as long as you pedal something you are making a difference.
Join Team GP VeloTek in making a difference. We promote health competition, communities, youth and sustainability.
