Volunteer Opportunities

EDUCATION Volunteer opportunities

Support BikePGH’s education programs like Positive Spin, Operation Illumination, City Cycling classes, and more. Education is for everyone: drivers, cyclists and pedestrians alike can learn how to get to destinations safely and to keep those around them safe too with Bike Pittsburgh’s programs.


Advocacy Volunteer Opportunities

Bolster Bike Pittsburgh’s advocacy programs by helping with policy meetings, surveys, campaigns, and outreach efforts. We can’t transform Pittsburgh alone: the collective voice of our members and supporters help amplify our mission.


community Volunteer Opportunities

Help out with BikePGH’s community programs by marshaling group rides, supporting events like Bike to Work Day and the Women & Biking Forum, and running bike valets. Building a community of people who bike and walk is enormously important to the work we do.

ATTENTION: There is no December Volunteer Night! See you in January!

Meet other people who like to bike while helping us in the office with tasks like stuffing envelopes, organizing gear, and prepping for events. Pizza is provided, and BYOB is welcome.


Intersection Heroes protecting an intersection with foam hands and swim noodles.


OpenStreetsPGH connects neighborhoods together with car-free streets where people can walk, run, dance, and play on a summer day. You can make it all possible by helping set up the event, answering questions of participants, or taking over an intersection with your team of friends or coworkers!

Opportunities for OpenStreetsPGH will be posted in the spring!
