Volunteer All Weekend
One of the best ways to be involved with Pedal The Plains without actually riding it is to volunteer!
PTP travels with a small core group of volunteers who help make this bike tour a success. The PTP Volunteer Crew is a unique group. Some volunteers have been helping since its inception, but some are brand new!
It’s a unique chance to see Colorado’s high plains, meet lots of wonderful people, eat and drink like royalty, and feel great about contributing to an event that benefits several charities across the Eastern Plains.
Who Can Volunteer?
Anyone! An event of this nature is dependent on the efforts of friendly and resourceful people. It’s a perfect opportunity to support friends and family on the Tour, or for anyone who wants to combine an adventurous outing with the spirit of volunteerism.
To help ensure a rewarding experience for all our volunteers, Pedal The Plains will look to recruit leads for each of the volunteer positions. Leads will have additional responsibilities and time commitments but will receive a few fun perks. If interested in a leadership role, please indicate as such when completing the volunteer form.
