Join us in volunteering for Handlebars for the Homeless 2022!
Handlebars for the Homeless is an annual charity bike ride which raises money and awareness for homeless outreach and recovery services provided by Neighborhood Service Organization (NSO). After a two-year pandemic hiatus, we’re returning to an in-person event for 2022.
This is our sixth year helping the Neighborhood Service Organization with this event. Volunteers will join us for a fun-filled day in greeting and preparing riders for their long journey including setup of the event, greeting and assisting riders, running various booths, and supporting the safety and security of all participants.
Volunteers receive a volunteer-exclusive commemorative high-performance t-shirt and lunch. Additionally, plenty of beverages, snacks, games, and an all-day DJ will round-out the experience. Not to mention countless photo memories.
