Fall Volunteer Opportunities Abound

The fall is a busy time for us here at MassBike and we need lots of volunteer support to make this season a success. MassBike volunteers help to spread the word about bicycling, directly help out other bicyclists, or help MassBike have the time to do more advocacy. You not only get the good feeling of helping your statewide bicycle advocacy organization, but we like to thank our volunteers who help out with 10 hours or more by providing them with a complimentary MassBike membership.

Check below for some of our upcoming volunteer opportunities, visit our volunteer page, or email volunteer@massbike.org for more information or to tell us you’d like to help out. (We especially need help during the weekend of the 24th and 25th, so please lend a hand if you can).

MassBike Volunteer Night
Tuesday, 9/13
5pm-8pm; 171 Milk Street, Suite 33, Boston

Volunteer nights are a great opportunity to help your statewide bicycle advocacy group, while having a good time and meeting great people. We meet every second Tuesday of the month at the MassBike office (171 Milk Street, Suite 33, Boston) from 5-8pm. Volunteers help MassBike to send out our monthly membership renewal reminders, prepare membership packets, and help out with other activities as they come up. We provide the pizza and drinks. Volunteer night is a great way to meet some other bicyclists.

Blue Line Evaluation
Monday, 9/12 – Friday, 9/16
7:00am-8:30am, 8:30am-10:00am, 4:00-5:30pm, and 5:30-7:00pm; Maverick T Station

You may remember that back in March the Blue Line Pilot Program kicked off, expanding bicycle access during rush hour on the Blue Line. Now, we need help from our members and supporters to make sure that this program continues indefinitely. During the week of September 12, we’ll have both morning and evening rush hour shifts to count bicycles and evaluate train occupancy. Shifts run every day from 7:00am-8:30am, 8:30am-10:00am, 4:00-5:30pm, and 5:30-7:00pm. Volunteers will be trained on-site, so anyone can help with counting.

Bicycle Valet
Saturday, 9/24
3:30pm – 6:00pm; Christopher Columbus Park, Boston

MassBike will be providing bicycle valet for the Moving Planet bike ride and event on September 24th. We really need volunteer support to help park 300 or more bikes. Bicycle valet is an easy way to help MassBike, greet bicycle riders, and get to see some great bikes. Email for more info or to sign up to help out.

Hub On Wheels Tabling
Sunday, 9/25
7am-5pm; City Hall Plaza, Boston

MassBike will be tabling at Hub On Wheels. We need your help to let riders and attendees know what’s going on with bicycling in Massachusetts and to tell them about MassBike. Come help out for a 2-hour shift and then watch the Mayor’s Cup race!

Oktoberfest Tabling
Sunday 10/2
11:30am-6:00pm; Harvard Square, Cambridge

We’ll be at Harvard Square’s annual Oktoberfest. We need your help to let riders and attendees know what’s going on with bicycling in Massachusetts and to tell them about MassBike. Come help out for a 2-hour shift and then enjoy the rest of Oktoberfest and the Honk! parade.

Thank you for your help! Please email volunteer@massbike.org if you’d like to help out with an event or if you have any questions.
