Volunteer

Be a part of making a child’s dream come true and have fun by volunteering with Kids on Bikes.

Ongoing volunteer positions

Bike Ambassador

Help us bring the joy and freedom of bicycling to all kids in Colorado Springs! Bike Ambassadors have the opportunity to represent Kids on Bikes out in the community through one of our many earn-a-bike/bike club programs, bike safety presentations, various family rides, and bike rodeos. With your help, we can reach even more kids and get more bikes back into the community!

Bike Mechanic

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 8pm, and Saturday between 11am and 5:30pm to help out!

Strider Bike Camp Assistant

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 Leader

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!

Mountain Bike Camp Assistant

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.
