The Big Canberra Bike Ride simply would not be possible without our wonderful Pedal Power volunteers.
Each year they contribute their time, skills and passion for cycling in a range of roles from course marshals and registration volunteers, to sweep riders and signage assistants.
Volunteer roles are now available in our 2019 Event Team. Sign up now and be part of making the Big Canberra Bike Ride a big success!
