Our Coaching Team

Vito Valentini

Vito is a USAC-licensed coach and avid cyclist who has been coaching and inspiring athletes since 2004. He is also a Les Mills RPM certified instructor and a ride leader for Gruppo Sportivo GFNY, where he leads training rides from December through May to prepare riders for GFNY NYC. Vito’s teaching and coaching practice is entirely focused on helping beginner and intermediate cyclists improve their lives through participation in the sport. Vito specializes at in-person lessons and training and if you are a beginner looking to conquer your first GFNY Bear 50, Vito can get you there.

Vito is also an important part of the GFNY family, having competed in the very first GFNY event. Since then he has been at the start line every year except for 2017, when he was being treated for, and recovering from cancer.  Cycling is an important part of his life away from coaching for the positive effect it has on his mental, physical, and emotional health.
