CREW AND VOLUNTEER

CREW INFO

Registering as a Crew Member is a great way to make a difference and use your expertise to help others. When you serve as a Crew Member on The Ride, you will put yourself through an endurance test, but you will be rewarded in ways that you’ve never imagined.

Before registering as a Crew Member, ensure that you are comfortable with the fact that Crew positions can be strenuous and physically demanding. As a Crew Member, you’ll attend the entire event in a service capacity, but you will not participate in The Ride itself.

OUR SUPPORT

Crew Members receive the same support and fundraising advice as Riders. Crew Members should always feel free to call our Ride Guides at [877] 699-BIKE [2453] for fundraising advice and pep talks. As a Crew Member, you are not required to fundraise, but you are strongly encouraged to raise a minimum of $500 so that more funds can be invested into cancer research.

Crew Members are the foundation of The Ride, and we work hard to make sure you have all the support you need.

You must be at least 16 years old to be a Crew Member.
