Bike Loaner Program

The C&O Canal is looking for volunteers to assist with the Bike Loaner Program, operating out of the Visitor Center in the Great Falls Tavern.  Volunteers help visitors select and make adjustments to loaner bicycles for rides on the towpath.  This is a suitable opportunity for friendly volunteers who enjoy working with the public in sometimes high-demand situations, and who are physically able to move and adjust bicycles. The Bike Loaner Program operates on weekends and some holidays throughout the year, weather permitting, with shifts running from 9:30 am - 4:00 pm. Please note: We accept volunteers who are at least 16 years of age for the Bike Loaner Program (approved for SSL hours).
