Volunteer with Bicycle Network

We like to think of our amazing team of volunteers as the super domestiques of this organisation and there’s no question Bicycle Network wouldn’t be where it is today without the support of these superheroes!

Volunteers are involved in every part of what we do – from serving on the board, to running our workshop, assisting in the office or helping out a team on a project basis – although the vast majority of our volunteers get involved on our many events throughout the year. There are always a variety of fun roles to choose from.

Our goal is to offer opportunities that allow volunteers to make a significant contribution not only to the organisation but to be a part of something that makes a real difference to them and to the wider community.

Some volunteer to gain experience or to get an insight into delivering a bike event, whereas others just want to help out, meet some friends, and be a part of something exciting! There really is something for everyone so why not give volunteering a go and join this amazing team.

The easiest way to sign up is to create a profile in our volunteer portal and pick yourself a shift. You can also sign up to our newsletter to keep up-to-date with volunteer news and promos.

Upcoming volunteer opportunities

Volunteer applications are currently open for: 

Around the Bay - Ride for a child in need, Melbourne VIC

On October 9, in Melbourne over 400 amazing volunteers will not only be supporting 10,000 riders pedal around our bay but deliver an event that raises much needed funds for the Smith Family to help kids fight the cycle of disadvantage. It’s a really special day to be a part of.

Ride2Work Day Celebrations, Sydney NSW

Across Sydney we will be celebrating National Ride2Work day at a number of different locations on October 12. We are looking for volunteers to help in bringing together the riding community. You could be handing out bananas or giving high fives to riders, it's a great way to show your support and breakfast is included! 

The Happiness Cycle, Western Sydney NSW

The Happiness Cycle, our program that is all about giving teens the opportunity to get active, get involved in their community and have fun through cycling is coming to Western Sydney! We are looking for volunteers to help in everything from building bikes to running activities. This will be a special one as we will be giving away our 10,000th bike! 

The Happiness Cycle, Geelong VIC

And then the program will be coming to Geelong! Still exciting, still fun, still making a difference for teens. And we will probably give out our 10,300th bike!

The RACV Great Victorian Bike Ride, VIC

From November 26 to December 4 this 10-day rolling bike festival will be kicking off in Halls Gap, finishing in Geelong and taking in the sights of the Great Ocean Road! There’s no question that this will be an adventure to remember AND with free transport, meals and accommodation covered, why not think of it as a mini-holiday on the cheap?

To apply for any of these opportunities you will need either create a profile or (if you already have) login to our volunteer portal. You then need to apply specifically to the event which you would like to help out at. You can do this via www.bicyclenetwork.com.au/volunteerportal
