Gulf Coast Velo (GCV) was founded for amateur cyclists in Charlotte, Sarasota and Manatee Counties who sought to form a more unified, friendlier, member-focused cycling club in our area. In GCV every member has equal opportunity to provide input and help evolve the club into the best in the area. 


If you are interested in supporting safe cycling in our area and you agree in concept with the GCV vision, we welcome you to join the GCV family.
