Volunteering with Kids on Bikes

Be a part of making a child’s dream come true and have fun by volunteering with Kids on Bikes. Take a look at our ongoing volunteer positions:

Bike Club Assistant Ride Leader: We host Fall and Spring bike clubs at various locations (blue markers on map).  These generally include 4-6, 1-1.5 hour sessions where we teach kids bike safety, basic mechanics, and riding skills.  While experience with leading group rides helps, it is by no means necessary.  Contact Mark Schenberger at mark@kidsonbikes.net.

Bike Mechanics: You don’t have to be a professional! Know how to do minor repairs on bikes such as changing tires, replacing chains, etc? We need people to help fix up bikes for kids.  Come by the Pedal Station (1026 S Tejon St.) on Tuesday and Thursday between 2pm and 6pm, and Saturday between 10am and 2pm to help out!

Mountain Bike Camp Assistants: Every summer we have kids bike camps and are looking for skilled bike riders who would like to assist with camp.   We can help you be flexible with your schedule and you can come for just a few days or volunteer for a full week of camp to earn a FREE child entry (for your own child or for a scholarship child from our earn-a-bike program).

Check out our Bike Camp page for full details on location and description of camps

Strider Bike Camp Assistants: Strider bike camps allow kids 2 – 4 years old the opportunity to learn how to ride a bike. Striders are a type of push bike with no pedals that allow children to learn the essentials of riding and balance. This is an exciting opportunity because you will be a part of kids first bicycle experience. We are looking for volunteers to commit to one week (5 hours).

Family PopCycle Ride Leaders: Every summer we offer a weekly family ride with popsicles!  The ride starts at America the Beautiful Park every Sunday from May-September starting at 1:00 PM.  We look for ride leaders who will commit to leading or sweeping one ride per month.  We are also hoping to expand to new locations so if you live in a different area of town and would like to start a PopCycle Ride, let us know!
