Be a UVM Bikes! Co-op Volunteer Mechanic.
What does a volunteer mechanic do?
The primary job of the UVM Bikes! mechanic is to help people fix their bikes, and hopefully teach them something about it in the process. Most people who come into the shop for repairs have simple, common problems — the brake pads are worn out, the chain is rusted, the cables need replacing, the headset is loose, etc — and the repairs don’t take all that long.
The secondary job mechanics have is to keep our rental fleet running smoothly. During the winter months, when renters aren’t riding as much or at all, we store our rental bikes in the co-op away from the punishing winter conditions and take the opportunity to tune them up for the spring.
And lastly, our mechanics help build up new rental bikes to add to the fleet, fixing up and restoring abandoned or donated bikes so they can be ridden and enjoyed by UVM students. We get a smattering of these donated or abandoned bikes at the start of each semester, so there’s almost always something to wrench on.
What if I don’t have any experience? Can I still get involved?
Yes! Absolutely! 100%! One of the biggest goals of the co-op is to teach people how to work on bikes, and the best way to learn is to volunteer. There is a huge spectrum of experience levels on our volunteer team, and we use that to our advantage.
