BIKES & BIKE PARTS

Our constant need is more bikes and more bike parts. All donations go to creating more blue bikes or fundraising efforts. Even if you think it is pure junk, in most cases we have a use for it or can make sure it is taken care of responsibly. Please bring any donations to Aggie Blue Bikes, located between the Fieldhouse and Military Science building on USU's campus. If we are closed, just leave donations at the bike rack with a note that says donations (although it does make us sad, we like to say thank you!). 

CHILDREN'S BIKES

We are in need of children's bikes in decent shape for our Aggie Blue Bikes Friends of Santa program, a program that refurbishes children's bikes and gifts them to Sub-for-Santa for distribution each Christmas. Please bring any donations to Aggie Blue Bikes, located between the Fieldhouse and Military Science building on USU's campus.It does not have to be Christmas time for us to need these bikes either. We will store childrens bikes all year. 


Volunteer

We like to work with our community as often as we can, whether that is participating in food drives, helping brush back trails, volunteering at races or cleaning and maintaining bicycles for folks in need. We need volunteers currently to table for the safety campaign for Utah State September 9th-13th, volunteers for bicycle pedestrian counts the week of September 9-15 from 7-9 a.m or 4-6 p.m. 

If you have a volunteer opportunity for our mechanics (bike valet, marshal riding) or would like more information on any of the opportunities email margaret.mccarthy@usu.edu

MECHANIC VOLUNTEERS

We need some experienced bike mechanics that would be willing to donate their time to help us get more bikes on

the road. This is a great working interview for future position openings at Aggie Blue Bikes or a way to get more efficient at working on bikes and getting to be in a fun work environment. Email aggiebluebikesagreements@gmail.com to set up times. We also need volunteers to tune up kids bikes for Sub For Santa 10/31-12/5 Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5-7 p.m. 

Volunteer Class

Don't know very much about bikes? Want to learn more while being apart of ABB's great culture?... If so, we want you on board! This class which will teach you almost everything about tuning up bikes. We ask that you find two hours outside of the class to come in and practice all the new skills you're learning. 

Our fall volunteer class starts Thursday August 29 and runs until Thursday December 5. Classes are every Thursday from 10:30-11:30. Come in, learn something and do good! It is okay if you miss some classes, you can always get caught up in your hours. 

What shop volunteers have to say about the experience they gained at Aggie Blue Bikes:

"The other day I walked a friend home. She hadn't been using her bike because the brakes were out. It took me two minutes and no tools and it was fit to ride again. Aggie Blue Bikes is an amazing resource. I used to think a bike would be a huge investment (for a poor college student). Now that I know about the shop and all the tools, supplies and great people there; I'm fixing my own cheap bike I got at DI."
