FB4K Madison’s workshop is closed for the summer. 

We would love to have you as a volunteer in the fall, winter, and spring! Fall is our bike collection season so we’ll have opportunities to haul bikes; Winter is our refurbishing season so we’ll have opportunities to clean and repair bikes January through April; and May is our bike giveaway season where you can help us give bikes to families at our bike giveaways. 

No experience is needed and kids above the age of 10 can help in our workshop too (parents are required to stay)! People find volunteering with us to be both fun and rewarding.

When our shop is open for volunteers, hours are available Monday – Thursday, 9am-3pm. We like to have fun while we work and volunteering is a great social outlet during these limited social options. 

*Our workshop is winding down for the summer months because all of our bikes have been given away just in time for the riding season! Please watch for numerous volunteer opportunities starting in September. 

**PLEASE NOTE: WE REQUIRE ALL STAFF AND VOLUNTEERS TO BE VACCINATED.

We also accept corporate teams to volunteer on Fridays in the winter and spring months from 12pm-3pm. Teams of 4-7 work great! For inquiries, emailing us at volunteer@fb4kmadison.org.

NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY: We have a spot for everyone at the FB4K Workshop! Whether you come alone, as an individual, or with coworkers, friends or teammates, FB4K is sure to provide a valuable volunteer experience for anyone.

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 info@fb4kmadison.org with your contact info or complete this contact form and we’ll respond as quickly as possible to find a good opportunity for you.

We collect donated bikes September through March. After we start collecting donated bikes, the refurbishing stage begins. The workshop volunteer season runs December through the end of May.

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!
