News and events


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

New Hours: 6am to 10pm, 7 days a week

At velofix Ottawa, we’re always looking to make our service more convenient. Over the past years our most popular tune up time slots were early mornings and late evenings. After talking to a large number of Ottawa cyclists, we found that you wanted your bikes serviced before and after work, and that there was a demand for earlier starts and later finishes. Effective immediately, we open at 6am and close at 10pm – 7 days a week. With 112 hours of availability per week, we hope to help you Save Time and Ride More. To book a bike repair, service, or tune up, visit www.velofix.com and enter your postal code into the “BOOK YOUR SERVICE” field. Read More

Meet your Mechanic – Mat!

We’d like to officially welcome Mathieu (Mat) to the velofix Ottawa Team! As we continue to grow, we’re always looking for the right people to bring onboard. Mat has been a longtime friend and worked with Adam for several years – before the days of bike tune ups and velofix. Despite Mat being a mountain biker, and Adam being a triathlon, the two got along really well and kept in touch. When Adam launched his first mobile repair shop in Ottawa, Mat was one of the very first customers. In fact, Mat actually helped build the interior of the first van (which is lovingly named Lola). With a strong passion for cycling, many miles logged, and a fun-loving attitude, we brought Mat on as our first ambassador. He road… Read More

The Home & Garden Show – with Elby

As the warmer weather rolls in, our calendar starts to fill up with events and races! Our next event is the Ottawa Home & Garden Show from March 23rd to 26th at the EY Centre. We’ll be there with our velofix van and the team from Elby.   Elby is a new e-bike (electric bike) that can give you a boost to get from point A to point B. All Elby bikes have built in fenders, lights, bell and kickstand – making it a great commuter. It also has a battery life of up to 135 km and charges in less than 5 hours – making a great way to get around Ottawa. Elby comes in 5 different colors, and we’ll have most of them on site next week.
