There’s a group of people who are every bit as important to Cycle Oregon as the riders, and they also have just as much fun (and probably sweat a lot less): the event volunteers.
New Volunteer Night
Every year, we have a few spots to fill on each of our events. In order to introduce ourselves to potential volunteers, we’ve having an open house dedicated specifically for folks who’ve never worked with Cycle Oregon. We will answer all the basics of the events (where do I eat, sleep, etc) and the organization (which is more than just a ride). Most of our time will be focused on the Week Ride, but please come by if you are considering volunteering for any event, it’ll be worth your time. Pizza and refreshments will be provided, please RSVP by Feb 23rd.
We’ll be looking at applications and assessing our needs through mid-March. At that time we’ll be contacting new recruits about joining our team. If it’s your first time around, consider joining us for the weekend ride. We always need new people and it’s a great way to get a feel for the week event.
Why Do They Do It?
Because it’s a unique chance to see amazing scenery, meet lots of wonderful people, eat and drink like royalty and feel great about contributing to one of Oregon’s premier charity fundraising events.
Who Can Volunteer?
You or someone you know is a prime candidate for this highly rewarding opportunity. An event of this size is dependent on the valiant efforts of hundreds of friendly and resourceful people. It’s perfect for friends or family of riders, or anyone who wants to combine an adventurous vacation with the spirit of volunteerism.
Become a Volunteer
Our volunteer application process will open mid February. While we have a number of our positions filled with returning volunteers, we’d love to hear from some new recruits. Particularly, we could use a few new people that don’t mind moving supplies and equipment throughout the day.
If you would like more information, give Chris a call at Cycle Oregon: (503) 287-0405 x103 or 800-CYCLE OR.
