Various Roles Throughout the Summer
We're hoping to create lists of people who can support ride leaders throughout the summer, as we regularly get leaders reaching out asking for corkers, people with bike sound systems, or support with transporting people or things by bicycle.

In the spaces below, add notes regarding how you can help, for instance:

Corker - This role is for people who are comfortable stopping cross traffic and allowing the continuation of rides through intersections. Let us know the following: Do you have de-escalation training? Are you trained as a medic? Have you corked before?

Bike Sound System - What sort of sound system do you have? Do you bring your own playlists or are you okay playing ride leader's chosen music? Any limitations to how far you can ride or through what terrain? Etc.

Hauler - What is your cargo-carrying capacity?

Bike Mechanic - Do you have your own tools? Do you have tubes, etc.? Can you go on rides to help along the way, or do you prefer to set up at the start? 

Medic - Are you trained as a medic? Do you have your own kit? What is your specialty?

Documenting Bike Summer
We need to document more Bike Summer events!! 

Photographer - we need "Instagram-worthy" photos to share on social media, on our website, and with the press. We'll provide events we'd like coverage of, and are also very excited to see additional events documented.

Videographer - we would like to share more Reels on Instagram! iPhone quality videos are fine. Bonus if you can stitch together movies with multiple clips.

Writer - we've got a handful of projects we'd like to take on, including a blog, an article series with a local news outlet, and on social media.

We're updating our volunteer database! If you've volunteered with us in the past, feel free to share a bit about your past activities -- and thank you. :)
