We’ve recently introduced you to our business membership program. We debuted the program in 2012 and are steadily signing up new business members in 2014. As part of the program, we’d like to introduce you to some of our business members. Today, meet VéloCity Bicycle Cooperative.
VéloCity Bicycle Cooperative is a do-it-yourself bicycle workshop and educational space in Alexandria, VA. Their mission is to educate, encourage, and empower a vibrant and inclusive cycling community through learning. They 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. There are community rides and courses to help every level of cyclist learn more.
VéloCity Bicycle Cooperative depends on a large group of volunteers who spend time helping customers repairing their own bikes. The shop also sells used bikes, parts, and clothing. The shop has hosted Women & Bicycles workshops at the shop in the past. We are happy to count VéloCity Bicycle Cooperative as a business member!
