Why Volunteer

  • Learn new skills.  No experience fixing bikes?  That's fine!  Volunteers learn bicycle mechanics through hands-on experience and guidance from professional bicycle mechanics.  You'll be turning abandoned bikes into functional transportation.  All tools and bicycles are provided by our shops, but you're always welcome to donate more!
  • Feel good knowing that your service will benefit someone locally.  Volunteers help fix the bikes we give to underprivileged adults with a strong need for reliable transportation but who are financially unable to afford the purchase price of a bike, such as refugees, people experiencing homelessness, recently incarcerated people, and more. Volunteers also help repair the hundreds of kid's bikes we give away each year, help pull usable parts off unsalvageable bikes, help with our charitable programming, and more. 
  • Enjoy an atmosphere of collaboration and learning.  Many volunteers form friendships as they work side-by-side to refurbish bikes for those in need.  Experienced volunteers often help beginner volunteers learn the tricks of the trade.
