The friendly spirit of the neighborhood is in high gear at VéloCity, which takes donated bikes, then rehabs and sells them and their parts for a good price. You fix your own bike, with help from experienced volunteers, and use the shop’s tools and supplies for just $10 an hour. “Everyone helps out everyone here,” said volunteer Joe Brown. “I live near Skyline [neighborhood] and am over here all the time. I wish we had something like this.”
