Make a difference as a volunteer!

We are looking for volunteers who have the same enthusiasm and passion as our cyclists. Together we will all work to ensure that the event goes smoothly and successfully and that each rider feels like a hero! The success of THE RIDE, powered by Mattamy Homes, will be in large part thanks to the efforts of our volunteers.

While we encourage our volunteers to fundraise, it’s not required. 

We need people to help with setup and logistics, active route support, assistance at the start and at the finish line. As a volunteer you will receive orientation and training, a custom volunteer shirt, and access to the entire event. You can also fundraise to support one of the largest learning and research hospitals in Canada - The Ottawa Hospital.

If you are an experienced rider, have first-aid training and want to offer support to our riders along the route, register as a Ride Guide.

Your role will be to encourage our riders, keep your assigned pace, and make the event memorable for the hundreds of participants. If you’re willing to trade in your need-for-speed in exchange for a feel-great experience, then this role is for you! Apply now to be a Ride Guide!
