The Pen Velo Racing Program (PVRP) is open to all Pen Velo members and designed to support racing at all levels. Pen Velo Racing has a long history of competing in the Northern California/Northern Nevada district of USA Cycling – see our NCNCA Points Series history.

The PVRP is coached by Matt McNamara of the Sterling Sports Group. A cornerstone of the PVRP is athlete participation in the season-long designated team focus races. These races target team objectives, are chosen to increase teamwork and team cohesion, and help individual athletes excel.

Becoming a member of the PVRP entitles you to special benefits not available to club members including the PV Race Rewards Program, participation in the annual Team Training Camp, monthly team meetings and race day team support.

More details for 2021 coming soon!

Want to join PVRP?

You can join PVRP at the same time as you renew your annual PV membership (or join the club). Already a club member in good standing, but want to join the race team? If so, email for instructions.

Women’s Team

The PV race team is recruiting as a whole, but the women of Pen Velo are especially looking for other like-minded women to join us. We are mainly focused on building our road cycling team, but we also have members who are active on the track, in the dirt, and anywhere in between. No racing experience or interest necessary. If you are serious about taking your cycling fitness and skills to the next level, talk to us!

The PV Women’s Team hosts women-only rides sporadically throughout the year. The dates, times and routes for these rides are announced on social media outlets such as Facebook and Instagram.
