How can YOU volunteer with Bikemore?

Bikemore was built from the ground up by volunteers, and with our small but mighty staff we still rely heavily on volunteers today! On Saturday we held a volunteer training to kick-off a busy spring full of opportunities for you to help out — and also to kick-off our new online volunteer sign up page

But if you missed it...


What does being a volunteer for Bikemore look like?

Throughout the year there are a variety of ways volunteers support Bikemore — everything from planning a route for a bike ride, to showing up at Department of Transportation meetings, to knocking on doors to get the word out about a project. We have a broad view of how we define "volunteer," because to us showing up at your community meeting and sharing your perspective as a person who bikes is just as crucial as helping to organize a bike ride. 

Here's a quick low-down on the types of volunteer roles we typically have. If you like talking to people, you like planning logistics, or you just like to ride your bike — we probably have something for you!  

BIKEMORE BOOTH We set up our tent at a community event and talk to people about Bikemore! You might help with set up or clean up, talk to people about what Bikemore does, or answer questions about biking in Baltimore. You'll always be paired with a Bikemore staff or board member if there are questions you don't know the answer to.

RIDE We organize rides to bring people together, to explore particular areas or issues, and to enjoy Baltimore by bike together! You might help check people in, act as a ride marshal to keep riders on route, or help with route planning beforehand.

ADVOCATING We show up (and #FilltheRoom!) at BCDOT meetings, community meetings, hearings, and other relevant events to make our voices heard. You might learn about a new project or an issue, and provide your input from the perspective of someone who bikes and walks. We try to let you know what Bikemore's stand on the issue is beforehand if we have specific recommendations.

BIKE VALET We provide bike valet parking, where people can safely leave their bikes at busy events. You'll help check bikes in and out, and might help with setup or clean up.

How do I find out about volunteer opportunities? 

You can now always find upcoming volunteer opportunities here or by clicking "Take Action!" on our homepage. As new meetings and events are organized, we'll always be updating it so check back often. 

You can also sign up to be added to our volunteer mailing list here. If we're in particular need for volunteers, we'll send out a request to that list. 



Volunteering with Bikemore is a great way to connect with the biking community, and have a real impact on making Baltimore a more bikeable, walkable, livable city — and we couldn't do it without you!
