Proteus Velo Club

PVC's Laurie Lemieux Clinics the Mud at the 2022 Croatan Buck Fifty

Proteus Velo Club is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping members achieve higher goals in competitive or non-competitive cycling. The club sponsors a regular  schedule of road and off-road group rides for cyclists at all levels and backgrounds.  The goals are to train and push ourselves to new levels, but also to do so in a welcoming, positive, and casual environment consistent with the laid-back Proteus Velo Club culture. All riders, no matter their skill or experience level -- recreational riders, racers, or social riders -- are welcome in the club. The club hosts social rides for casual cyclists to promote community and enhance physical and mental health. Current club membership stands at about 40 members.

PVC Members! 2022 dues of $25 are, well, due. 

You don't have to be a dues-paying member to access our schedule of public club rides and stay updated by joining our Google listserv group. However, if you ride with us more than a few times per year, we ask that you become a dues-paying member, which entitles you to club discounts and helps defray insurance and administrative costs. For dues and other payments (such as for jerseys etc.) make checks out to "Proteus Velo Club" and drop off at the shop, or use PayPal and send dues to "" Make sure you click on "send money to a friend/family" when paying dues or else Paypal will take a fee.
