Volodymyr Bileka (Ukrainian: Володимир Білека, born 6 February 1979 in Drohobych) is a Ukrainian professional road bicycle racer. He rode for Discovery Channel between 2005 and 2007. As with teammate and compatriot Yaroslav Popovych, he showed promise by winning numerous races as a junior before turning professional.
On May 3, 2008 Bileka sent a letter to Silence–Lotto team management announcing his resignation from the team due to personal reasons, later revealed to be a positive test for EPO that resulted in a two-year ban. He made a comeback in professional cycling in 2010, riding for lower ranked teams. In 2012, while riding for Torku Şeker Spor, he tested positive for pseudoephedrine at the first stage of Tour of Trakya. He is now under a four-year-long suspension that will end 1 July 2016.
