We have taken over 190 kids on mountain bike rides in the last year and our bikes are taking a beating! We need someone or a group of people to help us keep our fleet of bikes up and running.
If you are handy with a wrench and would like to help us in our mission to introduce underserved youth to the sport of mountain biking, please consider taking on the role of maintenance director for Trips For Kids Tampa or serving on the maintenance committee.
We have a workshop equipped with tools and a stand located on the Alafia River near the Riverview library (Riverview Dr and 301). Anyone serving on the maintenance committee will have full access to our shop and is more than welcome to use our tools and shop for their own bike repairs as well. I will also personally keep a fridge stocked with the adult beverages of your choice and as an added perk have 7 seven docks on the Alafia River loaded with snook, redfish, and mullet that you are more than welcome to fish off of whenever you are at the shop.What the job entails:
- Develop a maintenance plan for our fleet
- perform pre-ride safety checks
- perform after ride repairs
- order needed parts from from our wholesale vendor (you will also be able to purchase your own parts from our wholesaler at our cost)
- extensive knowledge in bike repair
- pass a criminal background check
Once a routine is established this will only require several hours of your time per month
