Welcome to Le petit vélo rouge!
Le Petit Vélo Rouge is a newly formed collectively run community bike organization in Montreal. Our aim is to build and sell affordable used bicycles to students and communities surrounding Concordia University as a way to support a growing need for sustainable and accessible transportation in the city.
We are a small and enthusiastic group comprised of a board of directors and two staff members. We are partly funded by a Concordia University Sustainability Action Fund (SAF) grant which will help us with our goal of opening up a shop and installing shop infrastructure. One of the project’s main objectives is to open a community bike shop on the Loyola campus that would sell bicycles to the Concordia community, thus increasing the use of bike transport and providing people with an accessible bike space.
Presently, our staff and volunteer mechanics are working hard to get used bikes back on the road and into your hearts! Contact us for more information about adopting a reconditioned bike, or getting involved with our new project.
Take care and stay tuned!
