2017 Canadian Cyclist Best Bike Shop Winner

Every year Canadian Cyclist hosts a “Bike Shop of the Year” contest. This year velofix Ottawa was honored to be amongst the winning bike shops – as voted by cyclists like YOU! Thank you to everyone who voted. After only 3 years in business, it’s amazing to see the votes coming in. Thanks for believing in us! Since launching this business in May 2015, my goal was to offer a service that cyclists would want to use and have a need for. We offer a convenient service, with the utmost transparency. We attend dozens of events every year and volunteer hundreds of hours to help keep you riding. I couldn’t be happier to see the positive response to an idea I had, all those years ago. http://www.canadiancyclist.com/dailynews.php?id=33255&title=2017-canadian-cyclist-best-bike-shops-the-winners… Read More

BOOK YOUR SERVICE NOW!

We’re open 7 days a week, from 6am to 10pm Even though we’re open all year long – we suggest booking your bike service between November 1st and March 1st. First off, your bike will be ready for when the weather becomes nice. Don’t be caught off guard when spring comes around. By having your bike serviced this winter, all you’ll need to do is pump your tires when you’re ready to head outside next spring (if you’re not riding all year long!) Avoid long waits! Between now and March 1st, we can guarantee availability within 48h. In-season, the wait time can often climb as high as one week. By booking a service this winter, you can promptly get a date and time that is convenient for you.  Don’t… Read More

Winter Trainer Promotion!

Are you on ZWIFT? Or Trainer Roads? Or riding your indoor trainer this winter? Buy a Smart Trainer or Power Meter this month and we’ll help with delivery, install and calibration! It’s that time of year, races are winding down and you’re enjoying some great fall riding.  For most cyclists north of the border, winter training means spending some time on an indoor trainer.  The good news is, that time doesn’t have to suck; at least this time around!  With the newest wave of Smart Trainers, Power Meters and online platforms like Zwift and TrainerRoad (and Netflix if we’re being honest), indoor riding is better than ever!  For the busy cyclist, indoor training offers the best quality workout in the shortest time.  To really get the best of these platforms and… Read More

Somersault!

Every year we support a race local series: Somersault.  So few cities have a race series as good as Somersault. This year, they’re organizing over a dozen events ranging from Winterman (road running) to a 70.3 mile triathlon. At most of the Somersault events, you can find velofix there too – offering bike services, tune ups, repairs, and rentals. Here’s a quick video of how last week’s race in Sydenham shaped up!  Up next for velofix is the Thousand Island Triathlon in Brockville, on August 20th. They have something for everyone at Brockville: running events, duathlon, triathlon, and swim-cycle event. Athletes of all ages and abilities are welcome and we hope to see you there!… Read More
