Welcome to Velo Promo!
The Continuing Crisis in health and in the cycling sport:
Velo Promo is continuing to put its events on hold for the foreseeable future. With the continuing increase in cases and deaths, and with a sizable part of the public not following the recommendations and the mandates, the counties and cities we deal with and our own concerns keep us from holding bicycle races and group recreational cycling events (such as Strawberry Fields Forever) until such time as a decreasing pandemic and a vaccinated public create a safer environment.
At this point I'm not sure when we can start up; it may be well over a year since our last race (Madera in March 2020) before we can get going again. So, nothing is set for January and February 2020. We will probably start as soon as we can with time trials first, then rural road races, and finally criteriums.
My apologies for this extended period of uncertainty, but it doesn't seem like there is any safe way around it. Stay safe, keep riding, and we will be posting more interesting pictures on Instagram, informing you of our plans on Facebook and the Velo Promo website, and doing a retrospective of our old tee shirt designs on Facebook.

Individuals have always supported Velo Promo races; now it’s time to get companies and corporations involved. We need to raise money via sponsorships for many of our most popular races. Everyone in the sport is or knows someone in a company to approach to get them involved in sponsorship of a category, or a race, or a series of Velo Promo races in Northern California.
All we are asking is to get the names and contacts of the right (and ideally interested) people to contact in Northern California companies. Many of you have enjoyed Velo Promo races for years, and we like to think we’ve added something to the sport in this area. We’ve had one company this past year join in (thank you Darren Mar-Elia and SDM Software!), but we need several more if we are to continue our program of races. Please contact us as soon as you can.
Thank you, ----Robert Leibold
