Interested in Volunteering at the Bike Shed?
Great, we’d love to have your help.
I don’t know much, can I still help out?
Yes you can. Bicycle repair is difficult, but if you’re keen to learn and put in the effort, we can help you.
Where do I start?
- Read our Volunteer Handbook and Visit the Bike Shed to speak to the volunteers.
- The next induction is at 10am-12pm on Sunday 5 June 2022. If you can attend, fill in the induction form and shoot any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- About a week prior to the induction, keep an eye on your email (including junk mail) for further information.
- Attend the induction, and meet your fellow new volunteers.
Advantages of Volunteering
Improve your bike repair skills – at the bike shed we think that learning comes from doing, and you’ll learn lots helping others with their bikes
Lunch is provided – we always stop and have lunch and we insist all volunteers have lunch with us and get a snack or two during the day.
This is partially to reward the volunteers for their time, but more importantly it gives the volunteers a much needed break and a chance to get to know the other volunteers.
Training days – periodically we have in-depth training days. Past topics have included three speed hubs and wheel building.
That warm fuzzy feeling from helping others and promoting bikes and building a better future.
