Volunteers

Would you like to support better bicycling in Missouri? We could not pull off our most important event of the year without the help of volunteers. BikeMO is one of MOBikeFed’s few annual fund raising events and provides a major portion of MoBikeFed’s annual income–helping make bicycle advocacy in Missouri possible. You can ride and volunteer, too, for selected jobs. If you are riding BikeMO yourself, do you have a friend or family member who would like to come and help for the day?

What We Need

Registration volunteers arrive at the winery early to help set-up the registration area, run registration, swag handout, sign-ups, etc. Riders who would like to volunteer but want to participate in the ride can help run registration and set-up and still ride.
SAG drivers are critical to the success of the ride. Ideally, we need 6 drivers. SAG drivers are on route in their vehicles during the ride. They assist riders as needed and will bring riders who experience technical difficulties, are injured, or having issues with completing the ride, back to the winery. They serve as our eyes on the road keeping riders safe.
The sweep vehicle ensures that nobody is left out on the road. They follow the last riders on the ride throughout the day. They provide notification to the SAG stops and the Ride Director that riders are finished coming through the area and the SAG can be packed up and volunteers released. A sweep vehicle allows us to be sure all riders are safely back at the start venue and we can shut-down the ride.
Do you have great organizational skills? Can’t help the day of the ride but want to assist making BikeMO a great success? We are looking for a Volunteer Coordinator. The VC will assist the Ride Director with organizing the volunteers and making sure we have coverage at all SAG stops, registration, etc.
SAG stop volunteers are the oasis is the desert for riders who are hot, thirsty, tired, and hungry. SAG stop volunteers make sure riders have plenty of food, drink, and shade when they come through. They assist in setting-up the SAG and breaking it down. They also serve as our on-site liaisons for the communities in which they are stationed.
Are you a skilled photographer? Would you like to volunteer your time to get some pictures of the riders on the road, SAG stops, and the after-party? We could use you to help document our event.

  • Extra discount on BikeMO after-party lunch deal

  • 2 MOBikeFed ride passes or MOBikeFed Family Membership
