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!

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. Upon completion of the course, you can join the trail crew to work on projects and daily maintenance and grow your trail care knowledge and trail maintenance through the seasons. With your new found experience you can now seek 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 and working with the trail crew will put you in good stead to be the custodian of a selected trail.
