Volunteer Build Night is a volunteer only drop-in program that runs every Tuesday from 4-7. Its both a space for volunteers to learn new skills and to work on their own bicycles.
For many volunteers Build Night is a space to learn the skills of bicycle maintenance and repair. If you are interested in volunteering at B!KE but don’t know much about bicycles this is the place to start! Please send Tegan an email to let her know you plan to participate and she will be happy to provide you with an orientation.
Build Night also serves a few other functions in the B!KE community. Its a space in which Open Shop volunteers can get away from the hustle and bustle of teaching to work on their own bikes. Its also a time that we schedule volunteer only workshops and events during. Since volunteers play such an important role in B!KE‘s success, we see Build Night as a way to create space just for them.
Refurbished bicycles sold at B!KE are built primarily during Build Night with the careful guidance of B!KE staff. All refurbished bicycles are safety checked by a staff member upon their completion.
