There are a number of ways for folks to help out around here. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been working on bikes your whole life, or if you just started riding and find yourself really inspired about getting involved. We’ll teach you what you need to know, come help us keep Detroit rolling!

Volunteer Opportunities at Back Alley Bikes for Adults (18 and older)

Volunteer Night:  Our volunteers help us maintain our space by sorting donations, building bikes for our Youth Give-a-Way program, cleaning the space and general upkeep of our warehouse. General Volunteers work at the Back Alley Bikes community shop on Thursday nights from 5–8 pm.

Sunday DIY Open Shop: Volunteers help run weekly DIY Open Shop times at Back Alley Bikes, when community members can come work on their bikes using our tools. Volunteers assist staff in teaching safe tool usage and bike repair skills.

More coming soon!
