The Best Bike Ride in America

General Requirements

Volunteers Needed forĀ All Events

We’re looking for volunteers for all of our events. We ask volunteers to commit to the entirety of the event and volunteers work an average of 8 hours a day, some work as many as 12 hours.

Week Ride Volunteers

For the Week ride, volunteers should plan to arrive at the starting location on Friday afternoon (Site Team arrives a day earlier) beforeĀ the ride begins and return home Sunday morning after the ride ends. Cycle Oregon hosts a volunteer thank-you dinner Saturday evening, the last day of the ride, and we will provide lodging that night for all volunteers. We provide transportation during the week for all volunteers.

Weekend Ride Volunteers

For the Weekend ride, all volunteers should plan to arrive early on Friday afternoon. We will need some Site Team and Sign Team volunteers on Thursday and Friday morning to set up the overnight site and mark the routes.

Women’s Joyride

For the inaugural event, we’ll mostly be using seasoned volunteers. However, there are likely to be a few vacancies. We would ask that you plan on spending the entire day at the event and we may need some volunteers the day prior to the event for setup and route marking.

Volunteer Training

We will hold a training meeting prior to each ride so you can meet other team members and learn more about your volunteer job. We will also provide you with a volunteer packet that includes specifics on the ride and your position.
