Squeaky Wheels Banner

The work of bicycle advocacy does not sleep! There are always lots of tasks to help out with. Squeaky Wheels welcomes your willingness to donate your time and energy. There are annual events, such as those listed below, and other tasks for you to take on. Your commitment can be 2-3 hours or something larger – there’s plenty of room for your talents.

You can help with one of the events listed in the calendar like Bike to Work and School Day or our Bike for Pie ride. Organize a ride! Meet riders with similar goals. Let us know and we’ll help get the word out. Send your articles and ideas to info@squeakywheels.org. Bring your idea, project or concern to the next Squeaky Wheels meeting:

6:30-8:00 p.m.  
monthly on the 2nd Tuesday
Marge Williams Center
221 West Winslow Way

(across from Winslow Green).

We are always advocating for safer cycling, but you can too! The more voices heard by our city, schools and state, the better. We have found that INDIVIDUALS MAKE A HUGE IMPACT when they call, write or show up at meetings.

Annual events

Chilly Hilly (Road Marshaling)

Each year Squeaky Wheels supports the Cascade Bicycle Club Chilly Hilly ride around the Bainbridge Island. It’s one of our largest fundraisers and requires many hands to help make it run successfully. We setup volunteer Road Marshals to keep riders safe, on the day of Chilly Hilly (always the last Sunday in February), If we can commit to at least 3 hours, please contact volunteer coordinator Elizabeth Ozimek – at chillyhillyvolunteer@gmail.com and express your interest in helping on either the Saturday before the event or on the day of.

Squeaky Wheels’ Bike for Pie

Our signature event, Squeaky Wheels’ Bike for Pie is a fun day that is put together by more than a dozen volunteers. There’s room for you to help out, too. We need pie-bakers, sign-makers, safety marshals, a clean-up crew, ride support crew and other folks to make the event go smoothly, both on the day and in advance of the event, which is on August 13, 2017.  If you are interested in helping out  –  info@squeakywheels.org
