The San Diego County Bicycle Coalition offers apprenticeships to aspiring bike mechanics and bike enthusiasts. This opportunity is ideal for high school students or college students who are interested in bicycles.
Skills training and tasks for apprentices include:
- Repairing bicycles
- Advocacy and outreach work
- Assisting with bike rodeos, bike rides and bike registration events
- Learning to be a bike coach
Apprentices will meet once a week with a bike coalition mentor (virtually or in person). All apprentices will have the opportunity to earn a bicycle after 10 hours of work. Bike coach certifications will also be available.
