Screen Shot 2015-11-27 at 10.43.11 PM

Film maker Justin Pelletier of Stray Matter payed us a visit at the VéloColour shop. We chatted and Justin shot some footage while we did our thing. Putting down some colour, drawing up graphics and some of our other regular daily activities were captured through his focused eyes. The video below is the result of his time spent with us. We hope you enjoy it.

VéloColour 2015 Jersey’s – Pre Order Available till April 20th.

We’re are putting in an order, with two designs we are really excited about, and we want you to have one! Whether heading out for a short morning ride, riding along blissful country roads, or refueling at a pastry stop we want to look good and we want you to look good too. Simple and classic that’s the way we roll!

For more information: http://store.velocolour.com

We also figure we can’t have everyone just ordering with out giving back so we have a bit of a Kit Giveaway happening

Here’s the deal: Everyone that buys a jersey before our pre-order closes on the 20th will be entered into a draw for a VéloColour combo pack.
What’s included? The jersey of their choice along with all black pro bibs, a sweet new matching V-cap and one of our classic musettes. Yup the whole package!

And Here’s everything in the ‘Kit Giveaway’

We have moved

It has been a long time coming, business has been great thanks to all of you and I have been outgrowing our small space at Bicycle Specialties for some time. I will keep this short today and will follow up with a post about the move and the fantastic new space shortly.

For now you can look for us at 191 Weston Rd. We’re just a little North St. Clair. It can be a little difficult to find as we are set back from the main street behind a large brick building.

As always we are there 10-6 Monday through Friday and open only by appointment.
