About Nelson Vails
“We All Ride The Same Road.” The Ride with Nelly road began in Harlem, NYC for “The Cheetah” Nelson Vails. Harlem may seem an unlikely beginning for a cycling legend, but it was there that Nelson started on the path to become the first African-American to win an Olympic medal in cycling. His silver medal from the 1984 Los Angeles Games is the crowning jewel to a prolific and successful career on both the track and road. Cycling has taken him down many roads around the world and Nelson’s contribution to cycling’s history was recognized with his induction into the US Bicycling Hall of Fame in 2009. Nelson continues to give back though his Ride with Nelly events, Sit the Wheel events, limited edition jerseys and NelsonVails.com.
