It takes a Village–Volunteer
We have no paid staff at the New York Cycle Club, yet our Club bursts with vitality. All these activities and more are made possible by the volunteer services and the camaraderie of like-minded members who have a common interest, their love of cycling.
To sustain the richness of the Club, we needs volunteers like you. There are so many possibilities. You are bound to find an activity that you enjoy, and your service will make a difference. We will celebrate your efforts at the end of the season at the annual Volunteer Party. Depending on your volunteer activity, you can even ride ENY after your shift is done. Volunteer now through our Active.com registration page!
Ride to designated spots on the route, assist riders when needed, answer questions, and cheer them on! Note that every marshal is required to do a pre-event ride with the Marshal Captain.
Check in riders arriving at Sakura Park on the morning of the ride. Provide them with their wristbands and cue sheets and answer questions.
Festival Set Up
Welcome the sponsors, help them set up for the festival, set up for lunch, and get the party started!
Morning Set Up
Prepare Sakura Park for the event. Early morning set up of tables, chairs, tents, and decorations. Set up and serve breakfast.
Morning and Afternoon shifts – tell people where to go – in the nicest possible way! Keep the flow of people and bikes orderly.
Prepare food and beverages, and then welcome our riders with our great NYCC hospitality!
SAG (Support and Gear)
Be ready to drive the route and help cyclists in need! Only licensed drivers need apply. : )
The day before the ride, travel the route with a fellow volunteer and put down the route markings. We are looking for drivers with cars as well.
Event Break Down
Late-afternoon/early-evening shift. Fold up the tables, chairs, and tents. Clean up the park.
Several pre-ride shifts (you can ride ENY when you’re done!). The day before the ride, load up the vans with supplies. Early morning of the ride, bring the vans to Sakura.
