As with all great business ideas, Velo Life came to existence when a few good friends got together over an even greater bottle of red wine about 20 years ago. With its humble beginnings as a small 100 square meter shop in Somerset Mall, Velo Life has now grown into a household name in the Helderberg Cycling Community.
We strive to run an “Unashamedly Ethical” business with our focus on service and providing high quality products to the end consumer at the best possible pricing.
Our friendly staff is eager to assist you with any enquiries related to cycling and would love to share their passion for the sport with you. Please feel free to pop in at our shop for a quick cup of coffee next time you’re in town, our (even better) join us out on the trails and roads as this is after all what cycling is all about.
Basin MTB Club
The BasinMTB Club is in charge of all Mountain Bike riding on Lourensford Estate. This is probably one of the most scenic farms in the Western Cape and has been playing host to major cycling events such as the Cape Epic, Wine-2-Whales and much more. Please note that this is a highly restricted venue and nobody will be able to gain access to the farm unless you are a member of the club or prior arrangements have been made with the club committee in order to gain access. Please contact the shop for more info regarding this club.
