Volunteer

We are looking for mountain bikers (who own their own bike) to join us in supporting adaptive riders coming from all over the Southeast.

These will be two days packed with fun and riding. As a volunteer, you will be teamed up with another volunteer and will act as tail riders behind the adaptive athletes. In the case that your athlete runs off the course, you will be there to support them with getting back on. We may also need your help with assisting the athletes back up to the top of the course.

Note:
Ride Kanuga is a downhill specific bike park.  Volunteers will ride High Rocks Climb Trail multiple times during training & race day (2 miles, 524 ft elevation gain).
