Here all the great ways you can volunteer to help make this event a success:
Event promotion and prep:
Poster Distribution, through Monday, April 17: Help us put up posters at cafes and bike shops all over town! We’ll provide the posters, tape and a map of locations; you provide the pedal-power. View the list of neighborhoods and sign up to spread the word about this great event.
Bike to Work Day Volunteer Night, Thursday, April 20: We’re throwing a special Bike to Work Day night at our office. Help us prepare supplies for the big day, and enjoy good company and dinner on us.

Whether you can join us for just one hour or all five hours, we’ll be happy to have your help. We’ll reward you with a free dinner and endless gratitude. Sign up to be a part of this busy, high-energy night.
