VéloCity T-Shirts Now Available On-line

VéloCity Bicycle Cooperative t-shirts are now available on-line through our Teespring storefront!

Teespring is a platform that allows groups to print apparel with no up-front costs. Once a few orders come in, they print and VéloCity gets the profits.

All funds raised through t-shirt sales will support our mobile capabilities and bicycle maintenance clinics in area neighborhoods.

There’s a wide variety of styles and colors to choose from. Grab a shirt and support the co-op!

March 2016.  

What made you want to become a Véloteer?

What keeps you volunteering in general and why do you like volunteering at VéloCity?

I typically use my bike for leisure, and transportation for chores etc…  

Describe the most enjoyable time you’ve had while on a bike? 

I would say the best times on my bike are going through the streets of DC, and discovering a new hidden landmark. Group bike rides are also a top favorite of mine.

We’re teaming up with Port City Brewing Company for a summer fundraiser on Monday, July 11 from 4:00-9:00pm. We’ll have a raffle and 10% of the proceeds from beer sales will go to VéloCity!

All money raised will go towards expanding VéloCity’s mobile outreach capacity, allowing us to serve more people at The Bike House East of the River Clinics in Anacostia and to jumpstart a similar program in Chirilagua.

We’ll have Gold Sprints stationary bike racing provided by District Sprints and Old Blue BBQ will be on hand selling tasty, tasty barbecue!

The raffle drawing will happen around 8pm and will feature Nationals tickets, bike stuff, and other prizes from local businesses!
