Bike to Work Day
On Thursday, May 9, join the nearly 300 SF Bicycle Coalition Member-Volunteers in celebrating San Francisco's largest bike event of the year! Volunteers help out in the morning, brightening commutes with free coffee, or in the afternoon, cheering folks on as they bike home. But why wait until May to get involved? We’re looking for volunteers to help plaster the city with posters about the event. Check out all the great ways to volunteer and sign up here.
Bike Build Convivios
At Convivios, which we hold in collaboration with People Organizing to Demand Environmental & Economic Rights (PODER), we assist local youth in performing basic bike tune-ups and repairs. View the upcoming events and sign up for the shift & role that matches your schedule here.
Bi-monthly Volunteer Night
This is the SF Bicycle Coalition's oldest tradition! Stop by, snack on tasty treats, chat with fellow members and volunteers, and help us keep our organization rolling. Dinner is provided. Bring a friend - the more the merrier! Stop by after work; no RSVP necessary. Don't forget to bring up your bike!
Daytime Office Help
Behind the scenes, volunteers keep our work rolling smoothly making membership kits, helping out with mailings, and uplifting our spirits! Have weekday hours to spare to help the bike movement in this essential way? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help.
Accept the challenge to chat up the SF Bicycle Coalition! Join the volunteers who keep the SF Bicycle Coalition membership strong. No cold-calling, just calls to friendly lapsed members offering an easy way to renew. Plan to stay for the thank-you dinner afterward and get to know your fellow volunteers. You must be a current or former member to volunteer. To sign up to help, email Juli@sfbike.org.
Streetside Service Stations & Outreach
Join the SF Bicycle Coalition in reaching out to city cyclists--out on the streets and at events! Meet fellow cyclists, and discuss how they can be a part of our work. Outreach is super fun and easy, and the most important way you can help advance the bike projects that matter to you! You can exercise your activist muscle by coming to our quarterly Bicycle Ambassador trainings at the SFBC office. View our upcoming Service Stations and sign up to help out here.
Tube Times Distribution
Help get the Bike word on the Street! Bring the Tube Times to your favorite neighborhood spots. Check out which gaps need filling!
Valet Bike Parking
Justifiably famous in SF, the SF Bicycle Coalition's bike valet parking is like a coat check for bikes. Give the precious gift of a worry-free fun time to a fellow bicyclist, all while in the company of other SF Bicycle Coalition Volunteers. Interested in helping at valet bike parking events? Check out our upcoming opportunities and sign up here.
