Become a Buddy!

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Bike Buddy!  Bike Buddies are the backbone of the organization and without them, we would not exist.  Your role as a mentor will be personally rewarding and lead to an increase of cyclists on our streets and, of course, a better world.  Before you sign-up, please review the position description.

Responsibilities of a Bike Buddy include:

  • Attending a one-hour training session
  • Promoting safe and legal cycling
  • Being a passionate cyclist

Once you are a Bike Buddy, you will be meeting with new cyclists to chat, offer tips and ride along their side to help them navigate city streets.  This means you will be meeting them at their desired location and eventually riding with them to where they need to go.  You can have as many or as few buddies as you want while some you’ll only meet with once and others possibly more.  Remember, you will not be responsible for teaching complete beginners how to ride bikes or expected to repair their bike.

Think you’re up for it?!  Fill out this form and we’ll get back to you ASAP!  Any questions?  Don’t hesitate to contact us at chibikebud@gmail.com.
