Age 16 or older? Help us empower New Yorkers to grab life by the handlebars! When you teach a person how to ride a bike, or how to make biking a part of their daily routine, it isn’t just the student’s life that changes.
Our volunteers remark time and again on the profundity of witnessing the aha moment when a new biker really gets it, when a recreational rider realizes that a bicycle is much more than a toy, or when a long-time cyclist finally learns how to fix their bike. Volunteer at a Bike New York class and be a part of someone’s aha moment.
Each volunteer shift is 3-4 hours long. Volunteers must attend a mandatory one-hour training session before volunteering at a class.
