WRENCH OR GREET DURING OUR OPEN SHOP
The best way to use your bike repairing knowledge is to share it! If you’re handy with bikes already, drop in and help out. If not, we would love to teach you by either showing you on your own bike, assisting you with a project build, or through mechanic shadowing.
If getting greasy isn’t your thing, we also need help running our greeter desk. Tasks include signing in shop users, light triage of our patrons’ needs in the shop, ringing up sales through our point of sale system, and setting up patrons with a stand and mechanic.
If you are ready to volunteer, get started by filling out our Volunteer Application and Agreement. We will email you to let you know when the next mandatory volunteer orientation is held (generally once a month).
SUBMIT AND BUILD YOUR IDEAS AND SUGGESTIONS:
Bike Saviours is a place to see your vision materialize very quickly! If you have a great idea for a program that we aren’t doing yet, or a feature we are missing, or just a simple change that you think would be good for the shop, you can make it happen if you are committed to it.
We welcome any good idea, but put a premium on those from people that are willing to actually make what they propose. Who wants to start Art Night or Youth Night? The resources of Bike Saviours, (tools, a shop, bikes, parts) have unrealized potential, and we welcome people who want to try something new.

ATTEND COLLECTIVE MEETINGS & BECOME A MEMBER
Bike Saviours’ major administrative decisions are decided by its Members, who act as a collective. If you want to help create, organize, and execute good policies and plans for our shop, attend our monthly collective’s Community Meetings, which are open to the public.
Meetings are on the first Sunday of each month at 7:00 PM at Bike Saviours.
Interested in joining the collective? Prospective members are required to be part-time volunteers for at least 6 months, though their main goal of joining the collective should be to advance the shop forward with work that is beyond wrenching and greeting and building. It is not a neighborhood brunch club and the work is not trivial: Members handle our financial plan, special projects, volunteer coordination, recruitment and retention, bookkeeping, and/or donation prospecting. Visit one of our collective meetings and we can discuss your interests, our needs, and where you might fit.
