You’ve seen them out front, they’ve pushed you from behind. They’ve helped you stay together, sweeping up and down the line. But who are these illustrious LACBC Ride Marshals, and how, oh how, can you join their ranks?
The answer is simple: Join us on Saturday, March 2, 2019, at LA State Historic Park’s community room for an LACBC Ride Marshal training and ride!
LACBC-trained volunteer Ride Marshals assist LACBC staff at group rides like Sunday Funday, the LA River Ride, and the Team LACBC Training Series. Marshals lead rides, perform sweep duties, provide basic mechanical support, keep participants on-course and in a group, and help make sure every ride is safe, from beginning to end. Marshaling is a fun way to support LACBC and an outstanding community of cyclists!
Anyone is welcome to participate in the Ride Marshal training, though we recommend that attendees are capable of riding 15 miles comfortably without stopping, have prior experience with group rides, can conduct basic roadside repair, and are comfortable riding in traffic situations! Volunteers from LACBC local chapters and Neighborhood Bike Ambassadors are encouraged to join as well.
Bring a functioning bike, helmet, water bottle and be ready to ride!
