EVENT VOLUNTEERS

  2. Photographer/ Social Media Co-ordinator
  3. Cycle Mechanics

The support drivers cover off a number of different roles. They are the awesome jack of all trades and master of all. :)

  • accommodation co-ordinator,
  • vehicle driver and
  • refresh/refuel person all rolled into one.

Support driver

Part of the role as support driver - Vehicle Drivers

The 25000spins Cycle travels in pelotons/groups of up to 30 cyclists, travelling at an average 25 -30km per hour. Safety is the most important thing on the road and each peloton is followed by cars with flashing lights. We are seeking experienced, safe drivers with an understanding and awareness of road issues that affect cyclists. Preference will be given to qualified paramedics/medical staff.

You’ll be responsible for ensuring the correct route is loaded onto GPS systems and followed each day in tandem with printed route maps. We are seeking people with a confident, mature and calm outlook who possess an understanding and awareness of road issues that affect cyclists.

Part of the role as support driver - Accommodation Co-ordinator

The 25000spins Cycle will stay at a different town each night and our Accommodation Co-ordinator is the link between The 25000spins Cycle and the accommodation provider. This role liaises with the hotel/motel to ensure they are prepared for our arrival each day. The role is also the point of contact for our cyclists who may have questions/issues with accommodation along the way. We are seeking someone with good organisation/admin skills and experience, and strong interpersonal communication skills that enjoy dealing with people.

Cyclist’s luggage and event equipment will be transported each day in the van you are driving. The support driver loads the vehicle each morning before the riders set off.  Our van driver needs to be experienced drivers. Please note that this is a physical role and will involve lifting and setting up equipment/luggage within tight time frames.

Part of the role as support driver - Refresh & Refuel Rest Stop

Along the route the 25000spins Cycle will have regular Refresh & Refuel stops for cyclists to take a break, and enjoy some food and drinks to keep them energised and hydrated for the remainder of the day.

As the refresh and Refuel crew you will set up and dismantle these stops. They are also responsible for collecting additional supplies each day from pre-arranged shops/bakeries and keeping a track of what we are running low on (i.e. water). You will need to notify the event manager.  Please note that this is a physical role and will involve lifting and setting up equipment within tight timeframes.

Photographer/ Social Media Co-ordinator

The 25000spins Cycle is an epic cycling adventure and we’re seeking an experienced and talented photographer to capture the experience for us. You’ll travel along the course and set up photo opportunities at key locations and work with our PR and Social Media Co-ordinator to provide images to websites and social media.

Keeping in contact with our supporters and the media when we’re on the road through the 25000spins Cycle blog and social media is vital. We need to make it easy for our cyclists to keep in contact with and update their family, friends and supporters on their journey. You will be responsible for writing and uploading daily blogs and social media updates across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. and providing social media tools for our cyclists to use each day. We anticipate considerable media interest along the way and you will be the primary point of contact for media. This role ideally suits someone with experience in PR/Marketing and with solid technical knowledge and social media/writing skills. The role is not expected to conduct media interviews.

Cycle Mechanics

We are seeking experienced cycle mechanics to ride with us in the pelotons and to follow in support vehicles

Mechanics will be experienced cyclists with a can do attitude and able to carry out running roadside repairs to keep cyclists on the road. In the evenings they will carry out repairs and services as required to ensure that the cyclist’s bikes are in good condition for the following day. We’ll provide equipment and spares, though you should bring your tools.
