Get your company involved
From team-building opportunities, to sponsorship benefits, there are many ways your workplace can engage with the Bike Works mission! Contact our Donor Relationships Manger, Julie York, for more details or to get involved.
Hire the bikemobile
The BikeMobile is our mobile bike repair shop. It is available for hire year-round for on-site bike repair at events and on corporate campuses. Our professional mechanics staff the Bike Mobile, and we hire paid youth apprentices during the busy summer months when you’ll also see it parked at community centers and parks throughout South King County, offering free and sliding-scale bike repair.
host a bike education workshop
Are you interested in offering educational opportunities to get your colleagues more interested in cycling?
Bike Works offers workshops on:
- How to Buy a Bike
- Commuting Tips
- The Right Gear for the Right Weather
- Fix a Flat and Basic Bike Maintenance Demo
Host a Team-Building Workshop
We also offer bike-building workshops for teams. Bond with your colleagues as you assemble bikes to give to youth and adults who would not otherwise have access to one.
sponsor programs & events
Sponsor our programs or the Bikecitement! Annual Fundraising Dinner and Auction in March. Position your business as a bicycle advocate and partner with us as we empower youth and build resilient communities.
Bike valet & bike rack rental
Do you need bike parking for your next event? You can hire us or rent our bike racks to do it yourself.
host a bike drive
Like a clothing or a food drive, a Bike Drive collects used bikes for use in Bike Works programs. We are always in need of bikes in good condition, particularly 20-inch wheel BMX style bikes, 24- and 26-inch wheel mountain bikes, adult sized mountain bikes and road bikes of any size, but especially smaller road bikes. For more information on putting together a successful Bike Drive for Bike Works, consult our Bike Drive Guide or contact us.
We always need volunteers to help repair bikes and with other projects in our Bike Shop and Warehouse. Organize a volunteer group for a great hands-on, philanthropic, team-building activity! All skill, experience, and confidence levels are welcome. Contact Julie York to discuss setting up a company work party.
