What is it?

This volunteer opportunity will give you enough mechanical training to be able to assess a bike’s state and and provide advice to cyclists on how to keep their bike safe and secure! Putting your new skills to use you will join a team of other staff and volunteers to perform safety checks of bikes at one of our Dr. Bike sessions hosted in the local community as well as during regular opening hours at the Hub. No experience with bikes is required, just friendliness, a willingness to get a bit greasy and learn about bikes!

What are the time commitments?

Pop-up events take place each term on campus and in community venues, including local schools, but these are changing regularly, so please check our volunteering Facebook page for current news!
