Velo Club La Grange

Velo Club La Grange is one of California's largest and oldest cycling clubs with over 500 members nationwide. The club was founded by Raymond Fouquet in 1969 and fields one of the top amateur racing teams in the United States. Past members include a Tour de France stage winner, an Olympic gold medalist, and numerous U.S. National and California state champions. La Grange is the recipient of the USA Cycling 2007 CLUB OF THE YEAR award.

La Grange promotes a doping-free competitive environment. Elite racers sign the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency's 'Athlete’s Pledge for Clean Sport & Fair Competition'. La Grange has arranged to have a cardiac screening and assessment provided to Club members and elite racers for no out of pocket expenses.

Along with the Club's dedication to bicycle racing, the club welcomes new and inexperienced riders with a passion for cycling. La Grange is very active in the cycling and fitness communities. Our continuing public policy work with state and local government has led to major improvements in safety for all users of California roads. In addition, the Club has partnered with the Association of Blind Athletes and Meals on Wheels and sponsors an annual scholarship with the help of the Union Bank of California. La Grange enjoys the financial support of several corporations committed to promoting healthy and active living.

Velo Club La Grange has a legacy of Olympic medalists, Tour de France stage winners, World Champions, National Champions, and State Champions, underlining the club's dedication to the sport of bicycle racing. There are four weekly training rides specifically for our racing members (but you don't have to race to join them!), and La Grange has reimbursement policies for all levels of racers.


And La Grange isn't just about racing. As a recognized community leader, we take an active role in many non-racing events, including the California AIDS Ride, the Southern California Bike Expo and the Solvang and Angeles Crest centuries. Our many non-racing members enjoy the camraderie of weekly group rides geared to the avid cyclist, as well as occasional jaunts to places like Santa Barbara. There are also several non-cycling events each year for all members and their families, including our annual picnic, Tour de France party, and Awards Banquet.
