Volunteers

The ongoing success of the RACV Great Victorian Bike Ride relies on the dedication of our amazing volunteers.

Escape the everyday and volunteer on the RACV Great Victorian Bike Ride!

It's an opportunity to travel to the amazing Victorian Grampians and Great Ocean Road regions on a 10 day volunteering adventure. We provide you with free transport, meals and accommodation.

On each day we travel to a new town, set up camp and help out the event riders. At each new town there are places to see and things to do so it's a great way to visit some beautiful parts of Victoria.

We appreciate the hard work and dedication of our volunteers and the 2015 team did an absolutely amazing job! More information for 2016 will be out soon, but you can register your interest via the form to the right of this page.

Want to ride and volunteer?

Most volunteers don't ride at all on the event but there are some volunteer roles, including the riding volunteer roles, which allow you to ride the route as well.

A riding volunteer is a rider – they purchase an event entry through the RACV Great Vic shop and then come event time, they head out each day and enjoy the on-road experience! However, they also volunteer 4-5 hours each day either before or after their riding. In return for this volunteering, Riding Volunteers are eligible to receive up to a 30% refund on their entry price. Riding volunteer positions are available for the 9 day ride option, and more details are provided here. You must sign up to be a riding volunteer before the event and can do this through the volunteer portal. Limited riding volunteer positions are available.
