Volunteer tasks include building Yellow and Kids’ bikes for our free community programs, sorting parts, organizing and cleaning the shop, constructing storage places, fixing tools, and on and on. These are all good ways to learn about bikes, bike parts, and how to use all those specialty tools you see all around the shop.

New Yellow Categories on the Austin On Two Wheels cycling event calendar
We’ve add more yellow to our Austin Cycling Events Calendar with a new category called Austin Charity and One Time Rides. These events, coded yellow, are one time or once a season non-competitive events like charity rides, centuries, and gran fondos. Basically, these are events you must register for but there is no winner determined at the end of the ride. Almost all of these are road rides.
These were previously under Austin Bike Rides (green) which include non-competitive rides such as regular club, shop rides, and social rides. Since a lot of people plan and train for these one time events and there are literally dozens of these regular group rides on the weekends, we thought it would be easier for you to read the calendar if we split them up into tow categories. The green Austin Bike Rides usually do not require registration or RSVP but some clubs do require membership for insurance reasons. Just show up and ride.
