Volunteer Opportunity

Bike Education

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.


Please note:  Our education volunteer trainings are on hold until Fall 2021. Please check back with us in September if you are a new volunteer. We welcome trained Bike New York Education volunteers to help with our summer programming; please email vols@bike.nyc
