Volunteer with HUB
Volunteer with HUB Cycling to help make biking better in Metro Vancouver. Volunteers support local action, educational programs, community events, public engagement, communications and our core operations.
Volunteer with a Local Committee
HUB local committees meet monthly and advocate for action to improve cycling infrastructure, increase cycling education in schools and represent HUB at events. Our local committees are always looking for volunteers to fill leadership roles (co-chair, committee volunteer engagement, stakeholder engagement, communications, social media etc), and small working groups to make your community safer and more connected for cycling.

Volunteer with the Newcomer Bike Mentorship Program
HUB Cycling is looking for volunteers who are strong urban cyclists and ready to make a three-month commitment to become mentors for the Newcomer Bike Mentorship Program starting in May. Mentors receive an orientation, then are matched with a newcomer mentee for weekly rides and get-togethers, group activities, and a final celebration.
This year we will have two program rounds, a Spring intake from May to July and a Summer one from July to September (exact dates TBD). Our program serves communities across Metro Vancouver, with operations based out of Vancouver and the Tri-Cities. We particularly need volunteers for the Tri-Cities location, now in its second year. We would happily welcome applicants from adjoining municipalities like Burnaby, New West, and Pitt Meadows/Maple Ridge.
If you or anyone else you know are interested, please fill out the online application form. You can also contact the Program Manager here. Please also pass on this message to anyone else you know who may be interested.
Thank you for your interest and help!

Sign up to be a Paid Bike Mechanic for 'Go By Bike Weeks Fall' October 16 - 20, 2023
We are looking for fantastic bike mechanics to perform basic bike maintenance (15 min max for each bike) for two hours. We will provide a stipend of $75, a bike stand, and a bike pump. You will only need to bring your own tools and any promotional materials you'd like on display.
Mechanic stations run Monday - Friday during the first week of Go By Bike Weeks (October 16 - 20). We will work with you to try our best to accomodate your schedule and favored Metro Vancouver location.
The responsibilities are as follows:
Put bike in the stand and do a quick safety check
Basic adjustments including air, brakes, chain, lube
Diagnose if there are any larger issues that should be taken to a bike shop
Each bike should take a maximum of 15 minutes. Especially at busy stations, this is to ensure that every participant that stops by gets their bike looked at while also avoiding overcrowding.
