Volunteer: Free Bike Repair + Safety Check at Sunnyvale Library 2023-10-14

October 14, 2023 @ 1:15 pm - 4:15 pm

Volunteer as a Bike Mechanic, ABC Quick Check Trainer, or General Volunteer

How it works: We’re partnering with the Sunnyvale Public Library on their bike repair clinic for April. We’ll be providing volunteer mechanics, ABC Quick Check training, and an info table to help connect folks to useful bicycling resources.

We’re scheduled to be on-site from 10:30 to 12:30, with a professional mechanic who works with the library on these events joining us part-way through. Expect to stick around until 1:00 or a little later to wrap up, answer some last questions and finish what we’ve started.

Volunteer Roles:

Volunteer Bike Mechanics: Help us fix more bikes! Quickly diagnose bikes for clients who are waiting, do safety checks, repair bikes and teach their owners what to look for next time. We encourage you to talk to clients about what you are fixing and how as well as about the benefits of becoming an SVBC member — SVBC is key for making biking safer, improving health, and solving climate change.

All levels of experience are welcome. If you have your own tools, bike stand, and/or canopy, please bring them!

General Volunteers: Check folks in, keep an eye on progress, and tell them about some of the bike resources and advocacy opportunities in the area. Help connect them to resources that will be useful for them and tell them about SVBC and Bike Sunnyvale, and the work we do (and they can be part of!) making biking safer, improving health, and fighting climate change.

ABC Quick Check trainer: Make sure everyone who’s leaving knows how to check their bike over for safety before they go for a ride, and observe the check to catch anything our mechanics might have missed.
