Riding your bike just got a lot easier. Whether you are a hardcore cyclist, a casual rider, or a family looking for bicycling fun, Velofix Southcoast RI-MA makes it more convenient than ever to get back on the saddle. Velofix is a Mobile Bike Shop that comes to you with tools, parts, accessories and a certified mechanic ready to provide a tune up, a repair, or an upgrade.
The public is invited to celebrate the launch of Velofix Southcoast RI-MA on May 27 from 5:30-7 p.m. at Newport Vineyards. Learn how to fix a flat tire, christen the Velofix van with champagne, and nibble light fare. The first 40 guests over the age of 21 will receive a free drink ticket. Children are invited to bring their bikes and ride a free balance bike course. Fifty lucky guests will receive a free Velofix water bottle. Everyone who books a Velofix bike service at the party will be entered to win their service for free. Event details here: bit.ly/VelofixLaunchRI-MA
Velofix is a full bike shop inside a Mercedes Sprinter van built to be just like a regular bike shop. The difference is that Velofix does all the work on site – at your home, office, school, or event. Our Mobile Bike Shops have all the tools needed to fix any bike, along with all the parts and accessories a cyclist could need. There’s even a coffee maker, TV, and Wi-Fi.
“I come to you and fix your bike and depending on the tune up, I can have your bike back to you in as little as an hour,” says Velofix Southcoast RI-MA owner Mike Lee. “I enjoy the challenge of tuning a bike to perfection.”
Booking a service with Velofix is convenient and quick. Head to Velofix.com, type in your zip code, and in a few clicks your appointment is booked! You may also call 855-VELO-FIX to make an appointment. Velofix comes to you, fixes your bike, and gets you back doing what you love; riding.

Velofix’s Southcoast RI-MA is owned and operated by Mike Lee, a certified bicycle mechanic. Lee is 20 year veteran of the sailing industry, where he has worked as a technical expert on sailboats in Grand Prix and Volvo Ocean Races. Lee’s expertise in carbon fiber and titanium sailing winch systems will serve him well as bicycles have similar mechanics. Given Lee’s passion for bicycling and mechanics, opening a Velofix Mobile Bike Shop was a natural step for him.
Velofix catapulted onto the scene after finding success on Dragons’ Den, the Canadian equivalent of Shark Tank. The pitch focused around bikers spending less time waiting for bike repair and more time biking. Hence Velofix’s tagline, Save Time. Ride More. Whether you’re a commuter, a road racer, a mountain biker, or a joy rider, that’s a mission that local cyclists can high five about!
