Volunteers are needed to help support the event at intersections and along the route as ambassadors: providing information and guidance to event participants, alternative route information to drivers, monitoring traffic barriers, setting up and breaking down the event, and keeping their assigned area clean.
We will need a few people to help out at the command center, assisting volunteers with check in, check out, and information during the event.
We are also in need of "Route Rabbits": folks who have experience working with large crowds and some traffic control, who have a bicycle, and would like more of a leadership role during the event. Route Rabbits are integral to making our event run smoothly, and interact with activities hosts and the event management team. They are an important part of the team responsible for assisting in helping to get the route closed off and reopened as smoothly as possible. Route rabbits also help to move volunteers where they are needed, stand in for volunteers so that they can take a break, and are the eyes and ears for the management team along the route, alerting us to medical issues, difficult drivers, and unauthorized vendors along the route.
Route "Ambassadors" tend to be more stationary, staying in either a specific location or range of blocks to answer visitor questions and/or man barricades to ensure that vehicles do not come on to the route.
