Want to help transform Greensboro into a safer place for cyclists? Consider volunteering with Bicycling in Greensboro!
CHANGING GEARS BIKE GIVEAWAYS AND SAFETY CLASS: Volunteer at a Changing Gears bike giveaway and safety class. This is one of the most rewarding opportunities! We provide underserved populations with free refurbished bicycles, locks, and lights and then they are taught safety skills and basic maintenance by a League of American Bicyclist Certified Instructor. At the end of the session, we all go for a short bike ride together!
REPAIR BIKES FOR CHANGING GEARS: Are you mechanically inclined? Consider helping us prepare bicycle donations to give to bicycle recipients at our Changing Gears monthly safety class and bike giveaway. Our mechanics meet regularly at our bike space at the Interactive Resource Center and are also encouraged to take home bikes to repair. Let us know you want to be involved!
JOIN OUR ADVOCACY COMMITTEE: Help us show the city that bicycling safety matters! Join our Advocacy Committee to help us strategize and effectively advocate for safer cycling infrastructure throughout Greater Greensboro. For more information on our Advocacy Committee and current projects, please see: https://bikegso.org/Current-Advocacy-Projects-and-Goals/
APPLE PIE RIDE: Become involved in the planning process for our annual Apple Pie Ride that takes place each year on July 4th. This is a charity bike ride with proceeds going to Bicycling in Greensboro to fund our work making Greensboro a safer place for cyclists! Consider joining our committee OR volunteering on the day of the ride. We are in need of people to help with registration, help preparing food, coordinating snacks and water and greeting cyclists at rest stops, assigning and keeping track of cyclist numbers to ensure that all participants arrive back to the finish safely, and helping us with setting up and breaking down following the event.
COMMUNITY OUTREACH: Consider helping us reach out to the community about our organization and issues surrounding bicycle safety and improving cycling infrastructure and bicycle related policies. This would include setting up tables at community outreach events and attending neighborhood meetings with our Projects Coordinator.
ATTEND A BOARD MEETING: Passionate about making Greensboro a safer place for cyclists? Consider coming to one or more of our Board Meetings. The meetings take place on the second Tuesday of each month from 6:00pm - 7:30pm at the Benjamin Library: 1530 Benjamin Pkwy, Greensboro, NC 27408.
