Joining Hammer And Cyclery
Hammer And Cyclery is a community of people dedicated to serving Burning Man through bicycles. Bicycle rentals pay for it all.
We work together as a camp to repair bicycles, receive donations, and facilitate events. Our crew hosts more than 1000 people per day!
But while bicycles are our excuse, getting to work with amazing people toward an important goal is the real point of Hammer And Cyclery. It's often brutal work, but it makes a real difference.
Join us to contribute and participate in something larger than yourself. (No experience necessary.)
