Our story

Our story starts with cities: over the past decade, we have seen the beginning of the transformation from automobile-centric cities to more walkable and bikeable cities.

By dedicating bike lanes and creating safe infrastructure more and more people are riding.

Most trips in cities are less than 2 miles and don’t require a car.

Electric bicycles and scooters are now more than ever the best vehicles for navigating cities. They are convenient, quick and fun and recent innovations in electric motors and battery technology make them very affordable.

The origins of Vene are with a company called HOPR,
a micro-mobility company focused on bicycle and scooter sharing since 2011. As the 2-wheel sharing market has grown in the U.S. to over 100 million trips a year so has the need for retail products that cater to people who choose to live car-free.

Vene is the next generation transportation store. We are the local bike shop evolved to meet the transit needs for people living in cities.
