Southern Maryland's Premier Race Club
Patuxent Velo (a.k.a. Pax Velo) is a USCF (road) and NORBA (mountain) bicycle racing club located in Southern Maryland. Our members primarily reside in St. Mary’s and Calvert counties, which are the two southern most counties on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay. The club provides a network for training, racing, local bike tours and related fun. Our membership continues to grow and the average annual membership is over 150 riders of all ages and includes both men and women. While the majority of our membership are recreational riders, there are a few that race throughout the year.
Pax Velo is known for promoting three major cycling events in Southern Maryland throughout the year. The first event is the Leonardtown Criterium Race, which is held in May or June. The St. Mary’s Century (previously known as the Southern Maryland Amish 100) is the second event, and is a century ride that features routes in distances up to 100 miles. The third event is the All Hallows Cross - a cyclocross event held in October.
In addition to our major events, our members enjoy many different rides throughout the year. Our most attended ride is the Tuesday Night Ride (TNR), which is well known throughout Southern Maryland. For more information on this ride and other organized rides click "The Rides" on the menu above.
