Stark Velo was formed in the spring of 2002 by the Stark County Bicycle Club (Ohio) in an effort to promote the development of competitive cycling.

Since then, the team has grown into a regional force in competitive cycling, and a team that is known for cooperation among its members.

Stark Velo is affiliated with the United States Cycling Federation (USCF), and is comprised of Club members who share an interest in competitive cycling. Training rides are open to all interested riders, and provide a great opportunity for an introduction to racing skills and tactics.
