Welcome to the website of the Osceola Velo Club
The Osceola Velo Club (originally of Central Florida, hence the name, and now) based in Lawrence, KS is an unsponsored, USA Cycling registered, road racing bicycle club which specializes in the development of the novice road racer (road, track, cyclo-cross).
Whether you are a total newbie, an experienced racer, or just want to get "race fit," the Osceola Velo Club is the place for you.
Come learn the ropes of bicycle road racing under the guidance of a nationally licensed cycling coach and experienced road racer (road, track, cyclo-cross).
"Personal Improvement," "Teamwork," and, above all, "Have Fun!"

02 Aug 2015 - Super successful day for Osceola Velo Club at the 2015 Kansas State Track Championships held at the Lawrence Grass Velodrome. Pat Schlager is the new State Champion in the Men's 55-59 500M Individual Time Trial while Pete Williams is the new State Champion in the Men's 55-59 Scratch Race! Pete W. also won Bronze in the Men's 55-59 500M Individual Time Trial and Pat S. won Silver in the Men's 55-59 Scratch Race. That's some great velodroming, team! Check out the photos of Pat and Pete on the Lawrence Grass Velodrome.
30 Jul 2015 - More success for Osceola Velo Club in St. Louis, MO on the Penrose Park Velodrome. Conner Rainey made his first trip to "Mr. Bumpy Face" and came away with 5 podiums -- 1st in Juniors' Tempo Race, 3rd in C's Tempo Race, 3rd in C's Scratch Race, 1st in C's Points Race, and 1st in C's Omnium -- in the weekly Thursday Night Race Series.

05 Jul 2015 - Another road trip to St. Louis, MO to the Penrose Park Velodrome for Osceola Velo Club's Pat Schlager, this time for the Missouri State Track Championships -- Match Sprints. Pat S. clocked a personal best in the qualifying Flying 200M Time Trail and finished 1st in the Match Sprints, Masters' Category. [Pat was not eligible for the State Championship Jersey nor Gold Medal since he is an out-of-state resident.]
30 May 2015 - Osceola Velo Club's Pat Schlager drove on over to St. Louis, MO for the Missouri State Timed Track Championships held at the Penrose Park Velodrome.
