Volunteer

February volunteer work party

Volunteers are the fuel that powers Washington Bikes. From data entry and tabling at events to providing testimony at public hearings and sitting on the board of directors, volunteers are the ones that make our organization successful. Whether you can give three hours a week or three hours a year, we have a place for you in our volunteer community.

Create your own volunteer assignment!

Is there a particular bicycle issue or project that you would like to tackle with guidance and assistance from the Bicycle Alliance?  Maybe you’re interested in documenting bike use in your community, or you want to create a video that encourages seniors to bike, or you’d like to organize a Share the Trail or Bike to Work event.  Email your idea to volunteer@wabikes.org.

Volunteer Work Parties

If you live in the Seattle area, our volunteer work parties are an easy way to get involved with the Bicycle Alliance and meet others who care about making Washington a better to place to bike.  Work parties are usually scheduled on the 4th Thursday of the month from 1-4 pm at our office.  Check the calendar for upcoming work parties.
