Ride Marshal at Bike the Tunnel – NZTA’s Waterview Connection Opening

June 25, 2017 @ 6:15 am - 9:30 am

Join Bike Auckland as a Ride Marshal on the Waterview Connection Tunnel Ride!

Bike Auckland is looking for experienced riders to join our Ride Marshal team as a volunteer on Friday, 23 June and/or Sunday, 25 June and support the thousands of people experiencing the Waterview Connection Tunnel by bike, before it opens to traffic.

What do Ride Marshals do?

Ride Marshals are crucial to keeping the ride running smoothly and safely. They are experienced cyclists who provide assistance along the course. Strong people skills and basic bike repair knowledge are a must. Responsibilities include helping riders with flats and bike repair, responding to emergencies, providing information to participants, setting the pace, and encouraging slow riders.

Ride Marshal Roles

Support riders who will ride in the middle with the group
