Volunteering

Volunteering

Without volunteers, cycling events couldn’t take place, so help is highly valued!

Volunteer roles at cycling events include everything from helping out at the registration desk, driving in the convoy, helping with timing and medal presentations, or even becoming a traffic marshal or commissaire!

Cycling events are fun, friendly and exciting to watch. Volunteering at a cycling event is a great way to spend some time outdoors, while supporting a vibrant community.
