EBC is run and operated almost entirely by volunteers: the board of directors, the fine folks hauling bike trailers full of bike repair supplies to a community event, the individuals writing letter to their city councillor about more and better cycling infrastructure, and the mechanics at BikeWorks are all volunteers.

If you enjoy bikes and community-building, come volunteer for Edmonton’s cardinal non-profit bicycle organization!

Join us for our next volunteer orientation or contact us at [email protected].


We welcome all stripes of bike-loving people, whether mechanically inclined or not, to help out in all aspects of EBC (events, advocacy, committee work, or at either of our shops).

We are always looking for people to help out at our community bike shop. Volunteers can take on duties as a Shop Host or Mechanic, or both.

All year round, but especially in the summer, EBC is busy delivering community outreach programs. Volunteers are helpful in many roles: hauling bike trailers of supplies to events around town, supervising festival bike parking, helping in one of the many events during Bike Month in June which EBC co-sponsors, providing minor bike tune ups at community halls and workplaces, and the list goes on!

Every year at the Edmonton Bicycle Commuters Society Annual General Meeting (AGM) we recognize individual contributions to the Edmonton cycling community with awards.
