Ride Leaders

Volunteers needed to help with after-school Mountain Bike Club

Offered by the Cumberland Community Schools Society and the United Riders of Cumberland this program provides an opportunity for students of all skill levels to ride in a supportive group setting. Ride leaders are responsible for leading a small group (with another ride leader) and encouraging a positive environment.

Volunteer Ride Leaders must:

  • Provide a Criminal Record Clearance
  • Be familiar with the Cumberland Trail Network
  • Have the ability to handle minor mechanical bike repairs (ie. change a flat tube, adjust brakes)
  • Be a current UROC member
  • Enjoy working with children & youth
  • Volunteers don’t need to be available for the full 8 weeks- even a few days can help!

FMI, or to volunteer, please contact Sue Loveless at ccss.coordinator@gmail.com, 250-336-8511, ext. 76611 or UROC at manager@unitedridersofcumberland.com

Ambassador a Cumberland trail

We invite you to complete the Level 1 trail building & maintenance course that UROC hosts annually in order to be considered for this voluntary role. On completion of the course, you will have the opportunity to Ambassador a trail within the UROC trail network. With on-call guidance and assistance from the trail maintenance team and trail supervisor, you will be able to care for a selected trail for a season. Generally, April to June and October to Nov. Your level 1 training will put you in good stead to be the custodian of the selected trail.
