Cycling

May: Safety first! It's been a cold few months and maybe you haven't been cycling as much as you usually would. To help ensure all Velocity Riders' safety while training and on the big day on October 2, we hope you'll brush up on some excellent cycling safety tips from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Impact

May: This year we commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center’s (HICCC) designation by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Since 1972, the HICCC has been supported by the NCI as a pioneer in cancer research and patient care. As a Velocity supporter, you're continuing to bolster the HICCC's standing as a top cancer center in the world. Learn all about Columbia Cancer at 50 below!
