Join the BikeMaine Volunteer Team, and lend your skills and talents to the success of this awesome event! Are you interested in participating in BikeMaine but not interested in riding? Do you like the idea of spending a week in Maine during early September on a “service vacation?” Are you living in or near one of the host communities and want to learn more about how to help showcase your community? Whatever the reason, you have come to the right place!
The Bicycle Coalition of Maine depends on the help and expertise of many volunteers to make BikeMaine a success. Volunteers are needed before, during, and after BikeMaine. They are key to advancing 400 bicycle riders safely across 350+ miles of Maine roads, and are integral in each day’s celebrations.
Volunteers are every bit as important to BikeMaine as the riders, and we know our volunteers have just as much fun as the participants riding the route each day. BikeMaine volunteers are critical to the success of the event and to laying the foundation upon which its reputation will be built for years to come. Join this super-fun team of volunteers from all over the U.S., and enjoy the volunteer experience of a lifetime!
