About Velowood Cyclery
Velowood Cyclery was formed in 2011 with a simple premise: to build the most beautiful, practical and customizable bikes on the market. Each bike is designed by its rider and then built by hand in Denver, Colorado. We'll walk you through every step of designing a bicycle that fits your needs and your personality.
We are located between the Tattered Cover and Twist & Shout on Colfax Avenue. Walk between those two and you'll find us directly across from the entrance to the Sie Film Center.
Phone Number: (303) 339-0085
Hours of Operation: Daily 12:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

The Legend of Ian
Owner. Bike Obsessed. Rad.
He Bleeds Blood
Ian is the head mechanic at Velowood Cyclery. He has worked in several shops across Denver along with having experience as a courier, and is currently learning how to weld. Among other things, Ian is an expert in the field of currywurst and dabbles here and there in Academic History.
Ian is also an experienced musician, playing with various punk and hardcore bands in Denver, playing on guitar. His taste ranges from Jazz to Japanese Surf and everything in-between.
If you've got a question on bikes, guitar amplifiers or what happened in early 20th century Europe, Ian's your dude.
Victor’s phone manners are exceptional even when people think his name is Richard. He’s a passionate advocate of Jazz and Swing dance and music, and performs in and out of town.
A Colorado native far removed for many years, Victor lived around the world in the navy for 21 years and retired in 2007. He has a long-standing commitment to small business, the vacant savings to prove it, and wouldn’t consider having it any other way.
Victor helps crop the pictures, run the business part, and share our story with our friends and fans all over the world. He built his first bike when he was 13, apprenticed at Bike and Hike in Longmont, CO, and builds more bikes for his friends than himself. He’s been riding and commuting by bicycle for longer than he can remember.
Victor is the only staffer who has owned 3 bike shops.
