Volunteer Orientations usually occur on the first Saturday of each month from 1-2pm, followed by Volunteer Shop from 2-4:30.
Come learn how you can become a part of our incredible bike-loving community!
No skills or experience required.
Volunteer Shop (2-4:30 most Saturdays) is a time for volunteers new and old to hang out and lend a hand with shop projects like: stripping useable parts off of scrap bikes, patching inner tubes, labelling things, sorting parts into their respective homes, general tidying and organizing, sweeping, dishes, etc… All very important tasks that help to make the shop space as inviting as possible!
Volunteer Shop is a great time to learn new skills and get to know the lay of the land. Want to learn a specific new skill? Just ask!

Have a pain that gets aggravated when you ride your bike? Or if not; do you want to learn how to avoid any riding related pains in the future? Then this workshop is for you!
In this free workshop, Kim Segal (RMT) will explain the often-ignored importance of proper bicycle fit and body form while riding your bicycle, as well as go over stretches and exercises relevant to cyclists both old and young.
Whether you are a long-distance touring fanatic or simply a commuter cyclist, Kim’s knowledge of body mechanics can help you have a more comfortable and safe riding experience.
Kim will also be bringing her massage chair (ooh ahh!) for minor treatments of participants’ ailments, after the workshop.
