CS stands for "Combined Strength". CS Velo is built on the premise that we are stronger as a group than as individuals, both on the bike and in our lives. The D1 team is part of a 80-member club in Philadelphia.
Our team was founded as a way to honor our loved ones who were battling cancer, hence the pink, white and yellow colors on our kit. We add the names of our loved ones to our jersey and pledge to use our "combined strength" to up lift them, inspire them or honor their memory. The names of those "in whose honor we ride" are printed on the backs of our jerseys and we carry them wherever we ride.
It is deeply moving and seeing those names on our teammates always motivates us to make that extra bit of effort.
