Valbonne Vélo Social Club

Valbonne Vélo Social Club is a cycling and social club based in Valbonne in Southern France. Our club includes male and female members of all ages, nationalities and cycling ability using mechanical road bikes, mountain bikes or electrically assisted bikes. 

We have two regular cycling outings, one on Sundays and another on Wednesdays, with a choice of itineraries based on desired duration and difficulty. Our rides usually begin in Valbonne or sometimes from locations higher up in the foothills of the Alps or on the Mediterranean coast. We organize a few events per year to other locations in France or Italy.

In addition to cycling, we are a group of people who like to socialize together, and events are organized or spontaneous depending on the situation. We also welcome social only 'friends' who don’t want to cycle but join our social events.

The Club was formed in 2017 by a group of friends who had been cycling together for a couple of years. The idea was to create a club that would combine cycling, or velo in French, with social activities. A desire emerged to create a more formal structure and to attract members and sponsors. Very quickly the numbers grew, sponsors contributed, club kit was designed and multiple events took place.

The climate lends itself to the cycling with mostly sunny weather throughout the year. 

The club is based in the beautiful village of Valbonne in the foothills of the French Alps. To the West the magnificent Esterel coast stretches to the Bay of St Tropez and to the East we can easily cycle into Italy. Mountain villages such as Gourdon and Vence offer breathtaking views and classic climbs such as the Col d’Eze or the Col de Vence are very close.

Our membership is diverse with male and female members of all ages from different parts of the world who enjoy cycling and socialising and have chosen this region for its beauty, climate and quality of life.
