About Velolet

What we do

We help cyclists rent bikes when they travel by connecting them with inventory that is otherwise difficult to find. The cyclist renting the bike gets what they want (to ride) and the bike owners earns some money. Us? We take a modest fee in there ourselves but thats only to keep the bike hub rolling smoothly.

History & status

Velolet was founded in 2010, and we're on a good path towards some success. We work hard, we test out our ideas, and then we put them out there for you as quickly as we can. We take feedback seriously and respond by continually tweaking this service and making it better for all of us. We are based in Minneapolis, one of the top bicycling cities in the USA

Team & talent

We like people with the unique combination of smarts, talent, respect and cycling skills for our team. The smarts, talent, and respect is a must but your cycling skills require only a passion for riding bikes. Interested in joinin the team? Contact us and let us know about you and why you think you'd be a great addition to the team!


We're the guys in the arena. We're a team and we're taking our chances and doing things our way. "Our way" is being open to ideas, vetting the ideas with respect, and coming up with our best approach to solving problems. We self manage and take ownership of our work. We are not perfect but we take initiative to solve problems swiftly as they arise. Most important, we keep ourselves focused on being positive.

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to those people who are actually in the arena… who know the great enthusiasms, the great devotions to a worthy cause; who, at best, know the triumph of high achievement; and who, at worst, fail while daring greatly, so that their place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat." Teddy Roosevelt
