Adapting our servicesSantroVélo is currently closed.
However, we have been working hard to adapt our services so that we can still help you.
And if at any time you need immediate assistance, please email us at email@example.com with a description of your issue and we will try to help you one-on-one over video chat.
Santrovélo is a do-it-yourself community bike shop associated with and supported by Santropol Roulant. Our mission is to empower community members and promote active transportation, cycling safety and eco-sustainability through bike repair. Our volunteer mechanics provide knowledge and access to tools in an enthusiastic, respectful and inclusive safe-space.
SantroVélo is a place of learning, so we won’t fix your bike for you like at a regular bike shop. Instead, the volunteers will teach, guide and support you as you learn to fix your bike and use the tools yourself.
Join the collective!
We are recruiting new volunteers for many roles such as core operations as well as in-shop client support roles. We regularly run new orientation sessions – please sign up here and we’ll see you at the shop very soon!Come join us!

Santrovélo has both used and new bike parts for sale to help you put your bike in good working order. New parts are usually sold at the suggested retail price, while used parts are sold on a sliding scale depending both on the quality of the part and the person’s capacity to pay. Note that for the shop use fee and for used parts, no one will be turned away due to lack of funds.
Women, Trans*, Femme DayOn the last Saturday of each month we host a Women Trans* Femme (WTF) day. First part from 1 – 2:30 p.m. is a focused workshop and the rest, 2:30 – 4 p.m., is for working on your own bike with help from our volunteers.
We welcome people who identify as female, transgender, non-binary, two-spirited, agender, femme, genderqueer, trans-masculine, trans-feminine or feel that their socialization or treatment as a woman, transperson, femme &/or person of marginalized gender has impeded their participation in bicycle mechanics. If you self-identify as such you are invited to come work on your bike, lend a hand or just hang out in a safe, gender positive space.
Santrovélo is hiring for the summer 2020 season to support shop operations as it transitions to virtual and at-home services. Bike mechanic experience is not necessary but a willingness to learn.
