Mission + Values
Bikechain is a not-for-profit cycling organization based out of University of Toronto St. George campus. We are a hub for cycling activity by providing DIY services, affordable repairs, unique educational opportunities, and a welcoming community of staff and volunteers.
- To preserve and protect the health of the public and to encourage safety and enjoyment of cycling by providing and operating one or more bicycle repair and free rental facilities;
- To educate the public by providing courses, seminars, and workshops about safe use of bicycles, bicycle repair and maintenance; and
- To protect and preserve the environment by promoting cycling as an environmentally sound form of alternative transportation.
Board of Directors
We elect a board each year in November at our AGM. We are always looking for new board members who are interested in fundraising, outreach, policy development or governance of small non-profits. No board experience is required, and students are encouraged to run. If you are interested in being involved, check out this board primer and contact our Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org to be matched with a current board member who can speak with you about their experiences on the board.
Bikechain and our Board of Directors are governed by a set of bylaws.
Every four years, our board, staff and volunteers collaborate on a strategic plan for the future of Bikechain. See the 2017 strategic plan here.
