Ride Leaders

Volunteers needed to help with the 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:

  • Enjoy working with children & youth
  • 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
  • Provide a Criminal Record Clearance
  • Volunteers don’t need to be available for the full 8 weeks- even a few days can help!

Trail maintenance Dig days or Ride-Dig-Ride sessions

Option 1. Contact your local bike store to find out when they have their next dig day with us and join in for a day of digging, we usually shoot for a Monday in the Spring or Fall.

Option 2. Join the Ride-Dig-Ride Friday sessions with the UROC trail crew by meeting us at a trail project and we’ll have tools there for you. We go out every Friday to maintain the trails (unless the weather is a stinker) and sometimes we work on new build projects. email – [email protected] to arrange a meeting place and time to get there.

Option 3. Join in on the open dig days also by Ride-Dig-Ride and joining the WhatsApp group to get updates on the Spring and Fall itinerary. Usually on the last Friday of the month. All Dig days start at 12 pm and go on till 3 / 4 pm. Between these times is open to suit you whenever you get there and want to leave. Email your contact details to join the WhatsApp group – [email protected]

See our Trail Care page / Trail maintenance for more dig days and trail building information.
