WORKING BIKES continues to operate today largely through the efforts of our dedicated volunteers. Individuals and groups looking to lend a hand are always welcomed. There are many ways to get involved, whether you are an expert bike mechanic, a novice wrench, or just enjoy giving back!
We appreciate when folks sign up for volunteer shifts ahead of time, but don’t let the signup be a barrier to stopping by the shop!
You can sign-up for a shift on the Volunteer Portal.
Contact [email protected] with any questions and please check out our Community Agreements, which apply to all who enter Working Bikes– whether staff, customers, or volunteers!


Working Bikes has volunteer shifts five days throughout the week that volunteers sign-up for in advance.
Shifts are limited to five volunteers, so please sign-up in advance!
Tuesday: 12pm – 8pm
Wednesday: 11am – 5pm
Thursday: BIke POC & Queer Volunteer Session 5:00pm-9pm
Thursday: 11am – 5pm
Saturday: 11am – 5pm
You can see all the shifts on our Working Bikes Volunteer Portal.

The shift times are a suggested range – you can arrive anytime in between those hours and stay for as long as you are able. We recommend planning on being at the shop for at least an hour if possible, especially if you’d like to spend some time working on your bike afterwards. All the shifts are open to first-time volunteers and folks who are new to working on bikes! If you have any questions before your shift, feel free to get in touch or review our Volunteer FAQ Page. We also highly encourage you to sign up for our monthly volunteer Enewsletter!


The needs of Working Bikes vary depending on the time of year, and we welcome groups from schools, organizations, small businesses, and large corporations to help us in the warehouse. We also welcome proposals for special projects, especially those utilizing the core competencies of the organization.

Groups should email Working Bikes to schedule a date at least 2 weeks prior to the proposed date, 4 weeks during spring/summer. To schedule a group visit or for more information about our volunteer program, email [email protected].
