We receive donated bicycles and need help fixing them, for programming like the Rides Around Program, Guided Trail Rides and Learn-To-Ride classes. Volunteers interested in improving or maintaining their skills as mechanics. There are times when people can come in and fix their own bicycles. Shop Mechanics help by offering excellent customer service, help, or advice when needed.
TRAINING can be formal or informal. Some volunteers attend classes on bike mechanics and volunteer to keep practicing; others learn "on the job" while volunteering, or while being paired with more experienced mechanics
SKILLS: Basic knowledge of bike mechanics. Volunteers should enjoy teaching others, are patient and flexible with others’ learning styles, and are familiar with "hands-off" teaching tactics. To be welcoming, and have excellent customer service skills.
COMMITMENT: We have 2 shop per month or travel with the mobile bike program. Shop Mechanics are asked to commit to volunteering for the entire duration (4 hours) of a shift, at least once a month
