Become a Walk N Roll Volunteer

A volunteer in the Walk N Roll bike shop

If you are interested in becoming a Walk N Roll volunteer, please complete our online volunteer application. We require all volunteers to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and to pass a background check.

Walk N Roll volunteers contribute to the creation of a safe and respectful learning environment by agreeing to follow these guidelines:

  • We respect people’s background and identities, including their names and pronouns.
  • We allow everyone to learn about bikes and tools at their own pace.
  • We ask for permission before working on someone’s project or taking their tools.
  • We clean and return all tools to their proper place at the end of each session.
  • We ask for help when we need it.
  • We communicate any problems to staff.

Bike Shop Volunteer

At the Walk N Roll Bike Shop, volunteers learn and practice bicycle mechanic skills while refurbishing donated bikes. These bikes are then used to support Walk N Roll’s bicycle education programs [link to Bicycle Education page]. All skills are welcome, and no bike mechanic experience is necessary. After applying, new volunteers attend a shop orientation on the first Saturday of the month 1 to 3 p.m. Regular volunteer hours are Wednesday 1 to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Bicycle Education Class Assistant

Volunteer Class Assistants support Walk N Roll’s bike education classes [link to Bicycle Education page]. Volunteers provide a variety of support such as: setting-up/cleaning-up class materials and supplies, assisting with instruction, and chaperoning students on group bicycle rides. Volunteer chaperones need to be experienced bicyclists who are comfortable riding on city streets with traffic.

Special Event Volunteers

Volunteers help at bike rodeo events and installing traffic gardens.
