To make BikeWorks as accessible as possible, we need as many volunteers as possible!  Anyone interested in volunteering at our community bike shop is invited to join us for an orientation.  We’ll give you the grand tour, fill you in on all the details and get you ready to confidently help out, either as a mechanic, greeter or wherever your skill set may lie.  Orientations will take approximately one hour.  The first two are scheduled for Wednesday May 26 and Friday May 28 and will begin at 6:30 PM at BikeWorks (10047-80 Avenue).  Snacks and drinks will be provided.  If you would like to get involved please try and attend!
