Here are the latest upcoming volunteer opportunities. For more information about volunteering, please contact us at [email protected] or call (503) 288-8864, extension 325.


Every Tuesday night – Refurbish bikes for the Holiday Bike Drive. Do top-to-bottom assessments and all needed repairs on 12″ to 20″ kids’ bikes. Great for all skill levels — novice mechanics are guided by more experienced volunteers.

Every Sunday afternoon – Salvage and recycle busted bikes! After the weekly Salvage Sale, volunteers tear down remaining bikes to rescue usable parts and separate materials for recycling. Great for all skill levels.

Mechanic Thursday – Have more mechanical experience than your average volunteer? Have you wrenched on many bikes in your day? Our Mechanic Thursday team is responsible for maintaining our fleet of program bicycles. Contact us for more information: [email protected].

Wheels – Contribute to our inventory! Help us refurbish donated wheel sets for sale in our shop. Volunteers with and without wheel truing experience are needed, especially those comfortable teaching the skill to new volunteers. Contact us for more information: [email protected]

Special Opportunities

Board Treasurer 
The Cycling Center is looking for a qualified financial whiz to join the board of directors and step right up to serve as treasurer.  This is a volunteer role with an estimated average of 6-10 hours per month of work. We are seeking someone experienced with both non-profit and retail financial management.  The Treasurer is a member of the full board (two year terms, meets alternate months), leads the finance committee (meets monthly) and works closely with the Executive Director on financial matters such as reviewing the 990 and hiring & supporting financial staff and contractors. Professional staff and contractors *do* the actual financial work, but the Cycling Center is going through some staff transitions and needs a strong treasurer to help ensure excellent financial management and ongoing systems improvements.   If interested, please contact Executive Director [email protected]
