velofix Ottawa is taking part in the 12th Annual Ottawa Health and Wellness Expo which takes place on Saturday, January 27th, 2018.
Who is velofix Ottawa?
velofix Ottawa is a mobile bicycle shop. They offer all the same services that a bike shop offers but with the added convenience of coming to YOU! With velofix, you get 1-on-1 time with your mechanic so that you can learn about your bike, ask any questions you might have and have the most transparency around your service.
Every velofix van is equipped with all the tools and parts to work on any bike: from entry level to high-end, from road bike, to mountain bikes, city bikes and more!
Their vans even have coffee machines, internet, fun accessories and a range of options for all cyclists. You can book your service online at www.velofix.com 24/7 and the vans are available 7 days a week.
Fun fact: velofix is appearing on Dragon’s Den this November!
How does velofix Ottawa help people achieve a greater level of health or wellness?
velofix Ottawa wants to keep you riding. Their goal is to make it easier for you to choose to ride whenever possible. If your bike is in top shape, they hope that you’ll be able to grab your bike for local errands, or for some daily exercise. Ottawa, especially the East End, has amazing cycling infrastructure and if you’re not taking advantage of it, you’re missing out!
They repaired over 3,000 bikes last year and are growing that number every year. By not having to bring your bike anywhere for a service, and being able to get to know the mechanic working on your bike, and having the ability to learn about your bike during the process -they hope that you’re more motivated than ever to get on your bike!
What inspires velofix Ottawa to do the work they do?
Their favorite part of the job is empowering people to use their bike. A bike can be a form of exercise, a form a transport, a great stress-reliever and above all, it’s FUN! When they’re able to keep someone on their bike and teach them something new about their ride, they couldn’t be happier.
