What we're about

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

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.

Volunteer Night @ The Warehouse

Location visible to members

Come volunteer with us helping us refurbish donated bicycles so that they can be used again by the community! This event is open to anyone (i.e. new volunteers, existing volunteers) who is interested, not mechanical experience necessary. The warehouse is closed to customers so that you can get hands on experience with learning bicycle mechanics. This is a volunteer run space so sometimes we will spend time organizing, sorting donations and stripping parts of bicycles but you'll still have a great time.

Note: This location is behind the building. Look for a large grey garage door with a regular size grey door next to us. That's where we will be.
