Volunteer for the 2017 DC Bike Ride!


DC is clearing the roads for the biggest cycling event of the year, and we need your help! The DC Bike Ride is an all-levels, 20 mile ride through the city. You will see bikes of every shape and size!

Volunteers are needed to help at the Friday and Saturday Packet Pick Up, and Sunday at the Start and Finish Lines, out on the course, and at the Aid Stations.
