Volunteers keep The Pedal Factory's wheels spinning! Whether you are a skilled or novice mechanic, experienced volunteer or a total newbie, we can find a job for you! All it takes is a willingness to learn and collaborate with others - and a belief in our mission of making bicycles accessible to everyone. Volunteer service can earn a bike, used parts and gear, and discounts on repairs.
We welcome volunteer groups, individuals, and families. Our regular open for volunteering hours are Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursdays from 12-7 pm, and 1st and 3rd Saturdays from 12-5 pm. Larger groups may be scheduled outside these hours. See below for current volunteer needs. All volunteers should sign a release / waiver prior to working in the shop or at outside events.
