Best described as a “cycling Renaissance Man,” on the national, regional and state levels Vincent F. Menci has tirelessly devoted the last eight decades contributing to and enhancing the sport of cycling with an unmatched passion and enthusiasm.

Through his all-consuming volunteer efforts, “Vince” has, and in many areas continues to wear multiple hats as a national events promoter, race official, district representative, stock bike innovator, cycling fitness and safety consultant, cycling historian and competitor.

Through all his achievements, Vince has modestly sacrificed personal gain and thousands of hours of his personal time to ensure the overall benefit and advancement of the sport of competitive cycling and cycling in general.

Those of have worked with and have had the privilege of being a part of Vince’s contributions attest to his honesty, intensity, fairness and integrity in whatever effort he decides to endeavor. Fitting testimonials have come from national, state and local officials and competitors over the years.

Typical of those accolades were applause form a former commander of the New Jersey State Police after witnessing Vince’s promotion and coordination of a three-day stage race that ran the entire length of the Garden State in 1986 and attracted cyclists from through the world. Said then State Police Col. Clinton Pagano, if he hadn’t seen the race with his own eyes he wouldn’t have believed such a monumental effort could have been accomplished, but after meeting and getting to know Vince Menci, he knew that anything was possible.
