Bike shop volunteer day

Event Series Event Series (See All)

Jun. 9 @ 9:00 am 12:00 pm

Bike shop volunteers at Freewheels Houston prep, repair, build and distribute bicycles that will enable refugees, veterans and young people from low-income families to get to work, school and other destinations.

We will fit your assignment to your skill level and interest. 

  • If you know how to repair brakes, derailleurs and other bike systems, we will put you to work on a bike right away.
  • If you are a beginner and want to learn about maintaining a bike, you will start cleaning bikes and undertaking minor repairs. Each time you attend, you will learn more about bikes.
  • Volunteers also distribute bikes: They make sure the recipient has the right size and style bike; give each person a new helmet; demonstrate the proper use of a bike lock, and introduce safe-riding principles.

Join the Freewheels team at our well-equipped shop in southwest Houston, learn new things and help make life better for men, women and youth by giving them the means to explore the city.
