No experience is necessary! We're looking for anyone interested in learning how to fix bikes, and in turn helping others fix their bikes. Experienced volunteers are always available during open shop hours for any new volunteers to ask questions.
We're looking for beginner bicycle mechanics for our volunteer open shop hours. The hours include Tuesdays 6:30-9 Wednesday 6-9, Thursday 6:30-9, Saturday 10-6, and Sunday 12-5.

Mission: Our mission is to grow and empower an inclusive biking community through education and affordability. Vision: Affordability: Make safe reliable bicycles more affordable for everyone. Diversity: Foster diversity within the cycling community. Education: Expand the availability of quality cycling education within the community. Recreation: Promote cycling as a healthy and enjoyable activity. 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. As a local non-profit organization, we rely strictly on volunteers and funding from private individuals and organizations. Although we primarily work with recycled materials, we do spend money on consumables with include things like bicycles tubes, cables, and brake pads. We encourage monetary donations from all that use the shop.
No experience is required to volunteer with Velocity. We have experienced volunteers to teach you everything you'd like to know about bicycles and community organizing. Come on down, make new friends, mess with bikes!
