Rider Experience Volunteer
As a Rider Experience Volunteer, your main goal is to ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience for all riders. This includes directing riders to registration, ensuring riders know where the start line is and when their route leaves, and cheering riders on when they return from their route.
As a Registration Volunteer, you will work with a team to provide a smooth and seamless check-in for participants. This includes checking riders off the master list and assigning a bib number, registering riders, verifying pledge forms and funds, and providing riders with t-shirts, bracelets, and incentives earned.
As the Route Marshal, your main goal is to provide encouragement to participants along the route at designated areas and to help keep them on the correct route. Route Marshals will also monitor the water and snacks available for riders at designated areas along the ride. Route Marshals must supply their own bike or vehicle to get to the water station.
As the Route Rider, your main goal is to ensure all riders have safely completed the route. This includes either leading the first rider or following the last rider, contacting the command centre in the event of an emergency, and communicating with the Route Marshals. You must supply your own motorcycle/bicycle.
As the Mobile Team Volunteer, your main goal is to provide mobile support to riders and volunteers through monitoring the route, going out to marshal stations as needed, picking up broken down bicycles and cyclists, as well as completing a final sweep of the route to ensure all riders have safely completed the route. You can work alone or in teams of two. Volunteers must provide own transportation (pickup truck or van) with room to transport a rider and bike.
