Bike races often come down to a few explosive efforts throughout the entire distance. Closing that gap, making the break, holding the wheel on that climb, responding to an attack or nailing that bunch sprint. That’s it.

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 Bikeable Communities, El Dorado Race Series training races at El Dorado Park starting in March and running through September. Members regularly participate in weekend races throughout Southern California in various disciplines such as criterium, road, and time trial races.

ARCO Grand Prix of Long Beach

Velo Allegro hosts one of the premier cycling events in Southern California, the ARCO Grand Prix of Long Beach. This USA Cycling sanctioned race brings together local amateurs and domestic pros from all over the region. The event is usually held in early July at the fast paced Hughes Park course and includes categories for women, beginners, and experienced racers.  Check the Calendar page for the date.  If not posted yet, please check back later.
