Volunteer Voice
Can you believe it? The Bike MS: City to Shore Ride on September 28 and 29 is less than 6 weeks away!

We still need more than 800 volunteers to sign up and help make this year's event a success. Check out opportunities to get involved below and in our new Facebook album. We especially need your help at the many rest/lunch stops along the route. Already registered? Encourage your friends and family members to join you!

Keep reading for a full list of our current volunteer opportunities. If you have any questions, or to sign up, please contact me.

I hope to see you soon!

rideCity to Shore - Ride weekend
  • Volunteering is more fun with friends! Encourage your friends, family members, colleagues and others to volunteer with you. Many work colleagues volunteer together, so consider creating your own group. Teenagers and college students also make great volunteers!
  • Are you part of a group (church, community group, military group, or other)? If so, invite your friends to join the fun! Check out the new group volunteer page for opportunities. The rest stop option is perfect for groups. Some people even choose to theme and decorate their rest stop!
  • Are you an experienced truck driver or do you know someone who is? If so, we need your help moving supplies, bikes and refreshments along the route! We're looking for 9 truck drivers to volunteer during ride weekend. CDL is not required, the largest truck is 26 feet, and you're welcome to bring a friend to keep you company!
