Velo Bella is a non-profit, grassroots, multidiscipline cycling team based out of Watsonville, CA. But we're popping up in spots all over the country.

The Velo Bella mission is to encourage a healthy and active lifestyle through cycling and laughter. We inspire women to get out and ride a bike, race a bike, and to eventually grow the pool of talent and have a lot of fun along the way. While the core Velo Bella Team is a committed group of female racers, membership includes female cyclists interested in completing their first race, century, or even group ride.

What Are We Up To Now?
