Jim Alvord has been a contributor to VPCC for over 20 years. Starting his time in T-town as a rider, Alvord is a 40 year cycling veteran on both the road and the track. Alvord began his cycling career in 1974 while competing on the amateur circuit as a road bike racer. Alvord captured a silver medial in the Pennsylvania State Championships hat year, his first ever license road race. For over a decade, Alvord either won or placed in the top three in both the Pennsylvania State Spring and Kilo Championships. While his cycling career is something to be proud of, Alvord can perhaps be even more proud of his coaching career. For over 20 years, Alvord has been involved with the PeeWee Pedalers. Under Alvord’s leadership, the program has introduced thousands of young riders to the sport while teaching basic skills, bicycle safety, and having fun, all at the same time.
