Santa Monica Local Bike Match Program: Volunteers Needed

For a few years we’ve worked to get bicycles in the hands of folks that have had their own bicycles stolen or cannot afford to purchase a new bicycle. Until now our donated bicycles have been distributed in our local community in exchange for a pay what you can donation, as gifts to individuals and for free local community raffles.

Early this year in addition to donated bike from individuals we received a number of bicycles from a local business and from Bike Angels. We have been working hard to clean and fix up these bikes to add to our Local Bike Match Program. The goal of the Bike Match program is to get donated bikes matched – for free – to individuals in our local community. As we continue to collect working bike donations (all sizes) we need volunteers to help clean them up and do minor repairs so they can be matched and distributed to new owners – for no cost – or if you have the means for a donation that will be applied to the Bike Match Program. 

If your bike has been stolen or you are in need of a bicycle and cannot afford one please drop us an email. An online application is coming soon.

What can you do? Volunteer!

We are hosting a wash and wrench session at the SMC Sustainability Center this Saturday, October 17th, 12-4pm* with our Bike Match Program partners at Santa Monica College Sustainability Program. Bike mechanics knowledge is very helpful but not required – some bikes just need to be cleaned.  

To donate a bicycle, parts, accessories or equipment please email Donate@SMSpoke.org 
 

If you can join us this Saturday, or for a future session please email us at Volunteer@SMSpoke.org 

*All Volunteers are required to take the Covid Health & Safety Survey prior to showing up to volunteer.
