Why the name VéloCity?
It's a combination of two words, “Vélo” and “City”.
We use “Vélo” because even though we engage in a wide range of activities, such as yoga and cross-country skiing, our main retail focus is selling and servicing all types of bikes.
Vélo means bicycle, from the Anglicized French word “vélocipède”: a lightweight wheeled vehicle propelled by the rider.
The predecessor of the pedal bicycle was a two-wheeled vehicle that was propelled with the feet while seated. It was patented in 1818 in Germany, and its name, Laufmaschine, (“running machine”) was translated into French as vélocipède (from the Latin roots meaning “swift” and “foot”). In English, this contraption was known as the dandy horse or the hobbyhorse.
Velocipede became a term in English for any wheeled vehicle propelled by the rider, including early bicycles. In French, it became the term used for the improved pedal-powered version designed in the mid-1800s. This was shortened to vélo to become their modern word for “bicycle.”
A “city” is typically a center of trade and commerce which contains the resources necessary to meet your physical, educational, or emotional needs. Cities are also places of vibrant community and bustling activity. VéloCity wants to be the place (city) to meet your various healthy lifestyle needs, as well as your place of community and activity.
