Current Volunteer Opportunities

Here are our volunteer opportunities for July and August 2019!

Bike Corral Installation Volunteer Teams

We are installing our bike corrals for the season (better late than never, right?)! We are looking for three teams of two people per team who can help with the installation of the bike corrals on the streets. You can help at either of the following three locations: corner of Agricola and Charles Streets (in front of Local Source Market), corner of Cornwallis and Bauer Streets (in front of Dee Dee’s), or at the corner of Spring Garden Road and Brenton Street (in front of the CUA). We will need help on Monday, July 29th between 12pm and 5pm (exact timing depending on the location). If you and a friend are able to help out, please contact Meghan at meghan.doucette@cyclehalifax.ca to schedule the exact time and location!

Rise & Grind Volunteers

Help out with our next Rise & Grind! We host monthly Rise & Grind events to hand out free coffee and snacks to people biking during their morning commute. We set up at a different location each month, and for August we will be at the Dartmouth entrance to the Macdonald Bridge bike lane. The event runs from 7:30am-9am on Tuesday, August 13 and we need one or two volunteers to help from 7:00am – 9:15am. Volunteering will entail helping with set-up and take-down of a table, tent, and other materials, as well as sharing information about the Halifax Cycling Coalition with attendees and signing up new members! Email Meghan at meghan.doucette@cyclehalifax.ca to sign up!

PACO Ride Volunteers

This fun group ride will include leisurely rolling along the waterfront trail in downtown Dartmouth, and ending at the Park Avenue Community Oven to make pizzas. We need volunteers to help lead the ride at the front, and someone to be a sweep at the back to make sure no one gets left behind! The ride will take place from 1:30pm-2:30pm on Sunday, August 18th, then we have the oven booked from 2:30pm-4:30pm. We need volunteers to arrive at 1pm to help get people registered for the ride, lead the ride, and then stay until 4:30pm to help out at the pizza oven. This is a really fun way to support our work, get a bike ride in, and eat some delicious pizza! Email Meghan at meghan.doucette@cyclehalifax.ca to sign up!

Park Days Outreach Volunteers

We will be setting up a free bike tune-up station and outreach table in partnership with Cyclesmith at the annual Park Days event at Mulgrave Park from 2pm-4pm on Saturday, August 24th. We are looking for one or two volunteers who can help with set-up, take-down, and outreach during the event. This will be a great fit for you if you are outgoing and have a passion for talking about the Halifax Cycling Coalition and sharing what we do. Email Meghan at meghan.doucette@cyclehalifax.ca to sign up!

Switch Open Street Sundays Outreach Volunteers

Join us at the annual Switch Open Street Sunday event on Portland Street in Dartmouth on Sunday, August 25th from 12pm – 4pm! We need two volunteers to help with set-up, take-down, and operating our outreach table at the event. You will need to speak about the work that the Halifax Cycling Coalition does, sign people up for memberships, and sell HCC merchandise. This will be a great fit for you if you enjoy talking to people and being outside at lively events! Email Meghan at meghan.doucette@cyclehalifax.ca to sign up!
