Bicycle Ambassadors at Service Stations
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 one of the most important ways you can help advance the bike projects that matter to you! SF Bicycle Coalition members can exercise your activist muscle by coming to our bi-monthly Bicycle Ambassador trainings at our office (contact Margaret to sign up for the next training). View our upcoming Service Stations and sign up to help out here.
Community Bike Builds
Since December 2012, the SF Bicycle Coalition has been working with a variety of community-based organizations around San Francisco to organize Community Bike Build events. Each event is an opportunity for the community to come together and learn about biking in the city in a participatory manner from volunteer wrenchers. 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? We're often looking for member-volunteers who can commit to coming in for three hours per week for a three month period. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
Light Up the Night CampaignWith November comes daylight savings time and a greater need to have bicycle lights on our evening commute. We are proud to have once again partnered with the SF Municipal Transportation(SFMTA) on our Light Up the Night Campaign, where we aim to distribute front and rear bicycle lights to hundreds of people who are biking without them. This is one of the most fun and rewarding volunteer opportunities of the year. For more details and to sign up to volunteer, go to: sfbike.org/lights.
Twice every month, our wonderful team of Phone Bank volunteers pick up the phones and keep the SF Bicycle Coalition pedaling strong. Join us as we call friendly lapsed members, offering an easy way to renew. New to Phone Banking? Our fantastic Phone Bank Coordinator, Juli, will train you in everything you need to know. Plan to stay for the thank-you dinner afterward and get to know your fellow volunteers. View our upcoming Phone Banking sessions and sign up here.
