We're seeking volunteers to help work the San Jose Bike Clinic community bike shop.
Here, you'll learn the in and outs on bike maintenance by helping repair bikes.
Members from the community will bring in their bikes for repair. Our role is to teach them how to repair the bike themselves*. Not only do you learn "on the job", but the community will be empowered to maintain their bikes themselves.

*During COVID we are practicing social distancing and safe practices. We will be doing the bike repair.

We're currently working on arranging "shop" hours, so hours are currently flexible.


If getting your hands dirty isn't your thing, we're also seeking volunteers for various roles from marketing/social media/event planning/accounting/volunteer recruiter/etc. Please email us at sjbc@bikesiliconvalley.org

If you're a college student, we'll try to find ways to put your knowledge and skills to use to put on your resume!

Our Mission

The mission of the San José Bike Clinic is to build a robust and diverse cycling community in San José by providing a shared space for bicycle repair and education.

San José Bike Clinic was the dream of a small group of volunteers that has now become a reality. Imagine...

  • Imagine a city with flat terrain and perfectly temperate, dry weather year-round.
  • Imagine its residents; fun-loving, practical, health-conscious, environmentalist, and brilliant.
  • Imagine its cycling culture, thriving with thrilling events like San José Bike Party, strong organizations like the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition, and amazing plans like the City of San José’s Bike Plan.
  • Imagine a space, dedicated to these cyclists, this city, and its thriving bike culture - a community space for bike repair, bike education, and general all-around bike love.

You’ve just met San José Bike Clinic. It’s nice to meet you.
