Vito Valentini   GAVIA Cycling

Over the past 10+ years I have been teaching/coaching primarily beginner and intermediate athletes (if you own sneakers. a sweatshirt and/ or a bike, in my mind you are an athlete!), helping them improve their lives by inspiring them to participate in a healthy lifestyle through cycling, both indoor and road.
At GAVIA Cycling we offer group cycling classes, personalized coaching and training as well as event specific camps (think: Gran Fondo NY).


I stumbled into cycling: I was certified as an RPM teacher in 2007. I wanted to be a better teacher and coach, thought riding outdoors would help me be that, and I found the something that has had the most profound and significantly positive effect on my life. Through cycling I have developed relationships with some really great people all over the world, my emotional, mental and physical health has never been better and I am able to go through life each day with a real sense of purpose (I even met my wife through cycling!).
I am a Coach, not a racer, although I participate in a variety of cycling events each year. I have a very clear sense of what it takes to help people improve as cyclists and I know that when that happens their lives improve dramatically, they develop a real sense of their own limitless possibilities and begin to proceed a long a path of personal growth that perhaps didn't seem realistic prior to fousing on their personal well being.
I am one of the members of GS-GFNY, the 8 member ambassador team for Campagnolo Gran Fondo NY, where I focus on helping beginner and intermediate GFNY participants become better cyclists, exceed their expectations in the race, and have the best possible cycling experience each May when they ride GFNY.
