About Southdown Velo

Southdown Velo is a friendly cycling club based around the historic City of Chichester.

Southdown Velo welcomes racing and non-racing members and supporters of all ages and abilities, all united in their passion for cycling. Most members live in Chichester, Bognor Regis and the surrounding area. Today we number nearly one hundred and fifty members with ages ranging from sixteen years old to seventy-five.

We have riders who regularly win races, some who are just happy to finish and some who never race. The important thing is that they all enjoy themselves.

Southdown Velo riders take part in road races and sportives such as L'Etape du Tour. This year, a group is travelling to ride the Tour Of Flanders, whilst another will be taking on the Southdowns Way in a Day.

Over the years we have ridden in Ireland, France, Belgium, Holland, Corsica and even Cyprus. During 2010 we rode the world cyclo-cross masters championships at Mol in Belgium.
