Organization Overview:

Bike New York is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to transform lives and communities through bicycling.

Proceeds from these events fund our free bike education classes, advocacy program, and Bike Path, which provides training to New Yorkers with modest job prospects, including those who are formerly incarnated, to become bike mechanics.


Job Description:

Bike New York’s Education Department seeks an energetic, organized person with bike
maintenance and mechanic skills to support our bike education efforts at our community bike education center and NYC Department of Education schools.

Used during our weekly Learn to Ride – Adults and other public programs classes, as well as our youth summer camp and after-school programs, each fleet will require tracking, necessary repairs, tool and replacement parts purchases, and reorganization throughout the season. Additionally, Bike New York supports the NYC Department of Education with the assembly and maintenance of school-based bike fleets.
