Volunteers are Vital to our Success

Bike Calgary is a volunteer-run, non-profit organization whose mission is to make Calgary a great place for all bikers – present and future – through advocacy, education and community. We are looking for volunteers to help this mission be a success.

Bike Calgary understands how important our volunteers are to our success and we appreciate the value of your time. We show this appreciation by

  • making sure there is purpose and meaning behind every task,
  • ensuring you know the time commitment, timeline and actions for each task, and
  • connecting you with an experienced volunteer to provide support.

If you would like to be part of the volunteer team to help make Calgary a great place for all bikers, contact us today.

Once you contact us, your name and email address will be added to our volunteer list.
