Hello Helpers!


We are a small group of foreigners living in Salzburg and repairing bicycles.
We always need help with our Project Bike. There many different things you can learn and at the same time help us achieve our goal: to provide bikes to refugees in Salzburg! Currently, we have about 30-40 bicycles to repair of all different ages and conditions.

There are two different roles you can take to help us with our project:

Role 1: Bike Repairer

This role includes general bike repairs, involvement in bike repair events, moving and collecting bikes.
Eventually we will be designing and building transport bicycles.

Role 2: Housekeeper and Gardener

This role includes the upkeep of the refugee housing such as cleaning and painting and simple repairs for around three hours a day helping.
Eventually this role will include starting a vegetable patch in the small garden of the house with the help of the refugees.

The house is in a central location, very close to the train station/river and sight seeing destinations featured in The Sound of Music. I will provide you with your own bike to get around in Salzburg while you are here. Salzburg is a beautiful city with opportunities to hike, sight see, and lake swimming.

My kitchen is a good place to sit, share different cuisines and socialise with each other. There is free WiFi. Around 2-3 weeks is the perfect amount of time stay here. Itís a spacious apartment, with volunteers sharing a living room and bedroom for sleeping.

We look forward to hearing from you and hopefully spending a nice time with you while you help us with our project.

If you are interested to joining Project Bike and helping us achieve our goal, then please send us your short CV/Resume or a description of yourself, stating which of the two roles you would like to take. THANKS!!!
