Volunteer as a mechanic

Core members of the Bike Cooperative volunteer their time to run the shop; we can't operate without them. As an incentive, core members are offered free membership for their service. Core members get other fringe benefits, too: dibs on quality parts and components, free food and coffee (or yerba maté), and a little bit of storage space. For more information, walk into the cooperative during open hours, or attend one of our meetings.

UPDATE: Beginning Spring Semester 2011, volunteers are able to get shop credit for (only) used parts in exchange for their time spent doing specific tasks according to a to-do list in the shop. Simply log your hours on the volunteer clip board. This information will be kept in a spreadsheet along with a record of parts to be exchanged for this time.
