Bike Farm is an all-volunteer-run collective dedicated to every aspect of bicycle education, from safe commuting to repair. Our mission is to provide a space where people can learn about the bicycle and build community around promoting sustainable transportation. We strive to demystify the bicycle in order to impact the city in a healthy and positive way.
Membership entitles you to full use of shop space and a professional set of tools with the assistance of a mechanic during open hours. Membership also entitles you to some free workshops and 20% off new parts and accessories.
You also get one month of free membership with the purchase of a bicycle. Work-trade, baked goods, frosty beverages, and other creative donations are welcome. (All trades are assessed on a case-by-case basis, and at the discretion of the shift’s volunteers.)
The best way to become a regular volunteer is to attend our Monthly Volunteer Orientation Night on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm in the shop. You will learn how Bike Farm works, our mission, meet other volunteers and get a better sense of what you might want to do. You don’t need to be a mechanic to volunteer! After the orientation, you are welcome to stick around and volunteer.
Bike Farm holds our general monthly shop meetings every 4th Tuesday from 7pm to 9pm. All are welcome at general meetings. Subscribing to our email list is another great way to get involved. Many shop discussions take place there.
If you cannot attend the monthly orientation, please show up during any open shift and talk to a mechanic to volunteer. We always have tasks for anyone to do and need the help! Friday, Saturday and Sunday shifts are particularly good days to get a sense of how the shop runs on busy days.
The following is a list of tasks we frequently need help with:
We are always in need of donations! If you have new or used bike parts or tools, feel free to bring them by the shop. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to send a volunteer out to pick them up. We also accept cash donations, which are used to pay rent and bills on the shop, buy new tools and build-stands, and maintain our retail inventory and website. No donation is too small, and your donation is tax-deductable.
Bike Farm will be operating under winter hours between October 1st and April 1st.
