Pedaling Philanthropy

We are so excited – our 2017 pilot volunteer season is here! Alexander Real Estate has generously donated warehouse space for Free Bikes 4 Kidz conveniently located

off of Rimrock road and the Beltline at 167 East Badger Road

(directions to warehouse available here.)

Select a volunteer role that’s best for you. Register now and get started volunteering for Free Bikes 4 Kidz!

We have three different volunteer categories for refurbishing the bikes. Don’t worry, our registration process will get you to the right place:

Cleaners – Each bike gets a good, thorough cleaning before moving on to the next stage. Just bring yourselves, we’ve got supplies!

Preppers – Take care of the easy stuff, mechanically speaking: Grease seat posts, change tires, swap saddles, new grips, new pedals, etc.

Mechanics – Knowledge and skills required. Change cables, adjust shifting, adjust brakes, true wheels, adjust bearings.

Hands-on not your thing? Want to help in other ways? We need site leads and help with administrative duties. There’s plenty to do and we’ll find a good fit for you. Please email volunteer@fb4kmadison.org with your contact info and we’ll respond as quickly as possible.

We’re collecting bikes on Saturday, January 14th – and then the refurbish stage will begin. The pilot volunteer season runs Monday, January 16th thru Friday, March 17th. (Stay tuned for info on our upcoming cycle, starting Fall 2017!)

Joining us for multiple shifts? Please note:  our registration system requires you to register for each shift.

We have three roles to fill. Just answer a quick question or two and we will determine where your valuable talents can be best put to use!
