Troy Bike Rescue is a collective of cycling enthusiasts operating a volunteer-run bicycle resource space in North Central Troy. We are committed to removing bikes from the waste stream and getting them back on the streets. We help to build bicycle community in the capital region through hands-on education. You can join us! We are always looking for new members who are interested in community and youth empowerment, creating safe spaces, questioning corporate car culture, and workin’ on bikes. No experience necessary!
Self-Service Workshop with volunteer staff; work on your bike, adopt a bike, or Learn & Earn! We are always in need of new volunteers, come try it!
Specific hours for youth ages 10-15; Earn-A-Bike for volunteer hours; must have signed permission form from parents.
Sunday hours are a shop cleaning and organizing day; Donations of bikes will also be accepted during these hours.
Volunteering is as simple as showing up to a shop session and beginning to participate. As a new volunteer you will have a lot to learn, like where we keep things, and how to answer the many questions you will receive, but be patient, and don’t be afraid to ask for help. The key to volunteering is coming back and creating a semi-consistent schedule for yourself and others. If you keep showing up, not only will you learn, but your presence will be appreciated.
