Velocipede runs on tax deductible donations. Velocipede gratefully accepts bikes, parts, and financial contributions. While we complete the move to our new space, please check the calendar on the Home page for details about where and when we can receive donations of bikes and parts.

Velocipede has been incorporated as a non-stock corporation in the state of Maryland since 2006. We have been an independently-operated 501(c)(3) non-profit organization since 2009. Our Federal EIN number is 76-0813009.  Donations of bicycles, parts, accessories, and other materials are tax-deductible.

As Shop Staff you will learn the ins and outs of the shop by working alongside another staff member. The skills learned here can be used to staff Open Night, Graduate Nights, and Classes. Those who have bicycle mechanical skills can be certified as Mechanic Staff to help us rebuild and refurbish donated bikes. Once approved, Staff members are asked to work at least 2 shifts a month to maintain the same benefits as Graduates.


Velocipede is in need of volunteers for checking-in donated bikes, sorting parts, building bikes for sale, cleaning, carpentry, and many other tasks aside from staffing. Contact Steve at
