Skyride is a mass participation cycling event organised by Sky, British Cycling and
Manchester City Council, aimed at getting more people of all ages and abilities cycling. It is now in its 7th year and will be taking place on Sunday 2 August 2015 from 10.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m.
The route is a 11.5km traffic free course through Manchester City Centre from National Cycling Centre, Etihad Campus and Chinatown.
We are looking to recruit volunteers from 9.00 to 17.00 to undertake a variety of roles on the day including:
? Stewarding – to marshal along the various routes to help manage the flow of cyclists along the route (in conjunction with Showsec staff).
? Information – to give out information at key points along the route and to act as a key contact point for queries.
? Other – volunteers may be required to help man other activity areas during the day including for example water stations, bike racks, cycling demonstrations.
Each volunteer will be provided with high-vis clothing to wear on the day. Travel expenses will be paid.
All volunteers will be provided with lunch and a bottle of water.
Volunteer Briefing Session
A briefing session for volunteers will be arranged during the week commencing 27th July.
