Volunteer

The Massachusetts Bicycle Coalition is always looking for people willing to volunteer their time with our organization. Whether that’s helping with office work, staffing events, or recruitng new members, we rely on volunteer support to help advance bicycling in Massachusetts. Check out below to see the ways you can help out or look at our volunteer calendar for when opportunities are available. All upcoming volunteer opportunities are listed on the calender below.

We know that volunteers make up a huge part of our success, so we want to make volunteering with us even better. Anyone who volunteers ten hours of their time will automatically earn a MassBike membership!

Volunteer Nights
This is a fun way for you to meet other cyclists and help out MassBike. Both rookie and veteran volunteers get together each second Tuesday of the month for good company, free pizza, beer (generously provided by Harpoon Brewery), and soda, and good, old-fashioned envelope stuffing. All you have to bring is yourself; we provide the food and drinks. RSVP early, spots fill up fast!

Event Volunteers
Outreach means many things here at MassBike. Sometimes it means getting petitions signed on the street, other times it means tabling at an event, and still other times it means giving passing bicyclists free air for their tires and lube for their chains. Whichever way you want to help out, our outreach volunteers are right out there trying to make bicycling in Massachusetts better.

Annual Events to look for include…

  • Bike Night – Early April
  • Bay State Bike Week – Mid May
  • Summer Century – Late July

Office Volunteers
We always need more help in the office! During regular business hours, volunteers can come help out in our downtown Boston office in a number of ways: basic research, data entry, envelope stuffing, or just giving the office a good cleaning. We’re always happy to see volunteers around the office to keep us energized and excited.

Valet Bike Parking Volunteers
MassBike provides bicycle valet across Massachusetts and we love it. We get to help out bicyclists and people can see just how easy it is to bike since so many other people are doing it. But we need your help to park all those bikes!
