Volunteer Classes

Good Life is going to be holding our Volunteer workshops starting January 9th. There will be four classes from 6pm – 8pm that will occur every second Wednesday. The dates are: January 9th, 23rd, February 6th, and 20th.

These classes are to provide bike knowledge for those who are interested in volunteering at The Good Life! We are asking for a $20 donation (or pay-what-you-can) for the whole workshop series, or a $10 donation if you just plan to drop in on one or two classes.

People who attend two or more classes will be able to use all of their workshop hours towards purchasing used bikes and parts at The Good Life. Anyone is still welcome to volunteer at The Good Life at any time, regardless of whether they have attended these  workshops or not, but these will give you extra mechanical skills to help shop users.

Please RSVP to these classes as soon as possible! You can do so at this link or on the Facebook event.

Good Life Bikes on CTV news

Calgarians can make a difference by spending their gift budget this holiday season at the Good Life Community Bicycle Shop. For less than $100, Calgarians can buy a used tuned bike which will help the Good Life be open all year round.

65 % of the Good Life budget comes from bike sales. When Calgarians choose to use part of their holiday budget at the Good Life, they are choosing to buy enivironmentally sustainable items and support a high-impact , award winning nonprofit right here in Calgary.

“When you buy a bike from the Good Life for a loved one, you are not only buying a sweet affordable bike, but you are making it possible for others to learn how to fix their bikes, for youth to get free bikes, and for low income Calgarians to be able to Earn-a-bike,” says Good Life staffer, Brett Aberle.
