This volunteer opportunity is organized through our campus partners: Sustain SU.
The Bike Library and Workshop is a fully equipped community bike workshop on campus at the University of Alberta. We provide the space and tools necessary to repair and maintain your bike and the services of our hired bike mechanic and skilled volunteers to teach you how to do it! We also provide bike rentals and have a wide variety of new and used parts for sale. We are run with the aid of several dedicated volunteers and sponsored by the Office of Sustainability.
Interested in learning useful bike mechanic skills? Want to meet other cycling enthusiasts? Looking for a way to get involved in sustainability on campus? If you answered yes to one or all of these questions then the Bike Library and Workshop is the place for you!
Benefits for you:
- Learn and practice bike maintenance skills
- Volunteer in a fun, fast paced, hands on environment
- Attend “Volunteers Only” skill building workshops for free
- Receive a discount on bike parts
- Access to our volunteer perks, which include fun giveaways, free tickets to select alumni events, volunteer socials and more (please note Bookstore Bucks are excluded from this opportunity)
Nervous that you don't have the necessary skills? No worries - no experience required! There is an experienced bike mechanic who will be in the shop during all open hours. As a volunteer, you can work alongside him and develop the skills of a seasoned bike mechanic.
