Volunteer Mechanics Class

Our Volunteer Mechanics Class meets every Thursday, from 6-9pm. The class is hosted by our Shop Manager and works through a 10-week, once-a-week curriculum concerning all of the systems found on a bicycle. As an exchange for this course, we  ask for a 20-hour volunteer commitment or donation of $10 per weekly class session.

Fill out the form below or drop by the shop to sign up for the 10-week class.

If you are not yet a B4HPDX volunteer, please drop in during our open shop hours, fill out our volunteer waiver, and join us before registering for the class.



The Next Volunteer Mechanics Class is now accepting new students. Sign up here:

Bikes for Humanity is dedicated to demystifying bicycle maintenance. In support of this goal, we offer our curriculum as a download. This is the same curriculum used to train volunteers at our shop and co-ops. Enjoy!

External Workshops

At all of our external repair events, the bicycle owners can observe and learn from our repair techniques and processes. B4HPDX can host external workshop events, depending on resource availability, scheduling, and equitable consideration.
