The Story behind the kit
It started 5 years ago with a group of friends who wanted to share their love for cycling. Velo City Riders was born from the desire to promote the love and enjoyment of cycling through education, safety, and camaraderie. Over the past 5 years, the Velo City Riders family has experienced amazing growth. From the humble beginnings with just 5 inaugural members, to now having membership of over 500, Velo City Riders Cycling Club is one of the Mid-Atlantic’s most popular cycling clubs.
In honor of their five years of cycling excellence, Velo City Riders Cycling Club is proud to announce the all new, limited edition, 5th Anniversary celebratory kit. The design team behind the anniversary kit worked hard on every detail of the kit to bring you this special design that celebrates this momentous achievement. The new kit sports a bold redesign of the Velo City Riders logo layered over the special anniversary colorway that highlights the dynamic nature of the club and its members.
The design includes a special 5th Anniversary logo on the chest marking the year the club was established, with the 5 years being symbolized by five wheels.
The kit also pays homage to one of our Velo family members that we lost in 2021. Grace D. Ligon, wife of our club member Tyrone Ligon, lost her lengthy battle with cancer. In honor of what she meant to the Velo family, her memory is immortalized in a shoulder patch on the anniversary kit.
Along with the special anniversary details, the kit highlights the club sponsors across the back.
The Anniversary kits are being produced by Athlos Sports. The full lineup of kit options include different fits and fabrics, as well as accessories to complete your Anniversary kit style.
Velo City Riders Cycling Club is excited to announce the re-opening of the Limited Edition 5th Anniversary Kit store through Athlos Sports. The store will only be open until December 31, 2022 at 11:59 pm, so don’t miss your opportunity to get your anniversary kit. This is the LAST store opening for this kit!

WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU ORDER THE CLUB CUT FIT AND NOT THE RACE CUT! The race cut is tighter and more form fitting. You can mix and match sizes and styles when ordering. Remember the store will close on Saturday, December 31, 2022 at 11:59 pm. You can place and /or modify your order until then. Once the store closes, all garments selected will be made to order.
Have fun, choose wisely, and gear up!!
Now that you've seen how good the kits look, be sure to order your kit here at the Velo 5th Anniversary Kit Store before Saturday, December 31st at 11:59p to get your own Limited Edition 5th Anniversary Kit! Once the store closes this time, the 5th Anniversary Kit will no longer be available for purchase.
Please Note: If you are new to cycling or not sure what size cycling clothing you wear, we strongly suggest you visit a local bike shop and try on some apparel. You should try on cycling shorts, bib shorts (shorts with shoulder straps), jerseys, and cycling gloves to determine the best fit for you. This will help you determine what size Athlos sports apparel to order. The Athlos apparel is custom made to order so all orders are final and there are no refunds or exchanges. Therefore, it is very important you know and order the right size that fits comfortably.
You can also refer to the Athlos Sizing Guide for more assistance.
