Racing

Bike races often come down to only three, four or five explosive efforts throughout the entire distance. Closing that gap, making the break, holding the wheel up that climb, responding to that attack or nailing that bunch sprint. That’s it. Those critical moments are going to require the effort of your life though. Don’t waste your energy on the things that don’t matter.

Velo Allegro has a strong tradition of competitive cycling. Our racing spans from fast paced training rides to USA Cycling sanctioned events.

Spring and summer have always been a time for Velo Allegro to sport its racing legs. We participate in the PARK2PARK training races at both El Dorado Park and Great Park starting in March and running through September. Members have and continue to participate in weekend races throughout Southern California in various cycling disciplines such as criterium, road, and time trial races.

Bicycle racing is a sport of patience. Racing is licking your opponent’s plate clean before starting on
your own.

St. Patrick’s Day Criterium

Every year on St. Patrick’s Day weekend, Velo Allegro hosts one of the premier cycling events in Southern California, The St. Patrick’s Day Criterium sponsored by ARCO. This USA Cycling sanctioned race brings together local amateurs and domestic pros from all over the region. The event is held at the fast paced Hughes Park course and includes categories specifically for women, beginners, and experienced racers. If we say so ourselves we run a darn good race, so mark your calendars and come out and join us for a great day of racing.
