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 cna help you. Alternatively, there’s always opportunities for volunteers to contribute in other ways.
Where do I start?
- Visit the Bike Shed and speak to the volunteers.
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to register for the next induction session
- Attend an induction session where we explain how the shed operates
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.
