Welcome to the Meetup Group! We're a diverse fun-loving group of people who like to refurbish old bikes, go for rides, plan events, have a drink, hang out with friends, support the local cycling community and we all volunteer at the only community run DIY bike shop in town: Vélocity Bicycle Cooperative.
Our meetups are mostly for events and volunteer only nights. To see open shop hours when you can volunteer anytime see our calendar (http://velocitycoop.org/calendar/) and come on in. However, we recommend swinging by on volunteer nights 1-2 times to get familiar before working on a busy weekend.
Our mission is to educate, encourage, and empower a vibrant and inclusive cycling community through learning. We provide a non-profit, volunteer-run, educational do-it-yourself workshop offering training, rides, and events to empower all levels of cyclists in building, maintaining, and embracing the fun of bicycles.
The first Tuesday of every month is New Volunteer Orientation Day!
This is a time set aside for new volunteers to come into the shop and learn with a special focus on fixing kid's bikes. Experienced volunteers will be on to teach and show everyone around.
We fix bikes, we make friends. It's fun.
Want to get more involved? This time is for you!
Help our Open Night patrons fix their bikes or come get help fixing your bike! Get an instant feeling of satisfaction watching someone leave with a bike you helped them fix. Learn from the other Véloteers! Pass on what you know! If it's slow and no donations to fix, work on your bike with advice from Senior Véloteers!
This time is open to anyone who wishes to come help out the shop or work on their own bikes. We're closed to shoppers so Thursday nights are a time for volunteers to be in the shop and learn bicycle mechanics, build shop bikes, and have a good time
