Grass Roots goes a long way. The future success of our sport depends on educated riders. From every level of rider whether casual or with aspirations to compete from knowing where to buy bikes, cycling gear as well as how to handle basic bike maintenance or correctly wear a helmet. Our community involvement programs reach out to help on every level. Into schools through our rider safety talks or hosting Kids Bike Safety Rodeos with the local chapter of Safe Kids of Delaware. Wilmington Velocity wants to take part in educating the future successful riders.
Our membership is founded on sharing knowledge to help our team and club members. We have seasoned riders some who have been involved in the sport for 20+ years. We have certified USCF expert coaches and resources through our network of professionals. We will be hosting rider clinics at various times of the year for all levels and abilities.
