Sky Ride Southampton

Sky Ride Southampton

Sky Ride will take place in Southampton on Sunday 12 June 11am - 3pm.

Sky Ride is a big, celebratory cycling event where lots of cyclists of all ages and abilities can ride safely together on a traffic free route. It has a real festival atmosphere, a fun day out for families and friends to enjoy, with loads to do both on and off a bike, and completely free.

The circular route is approximately 5 miles in length  and participants can ride the whole route in one go or stop off to enjoy the many free activities, then join the route again. The route takes you around the city.

Volunteers Wanted For Sky Ride

Whether you just have a couple of hours to spare or the whole day, we would welcome your help as a volunteer marshal.

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, improve your communication and people skills whilst working as part of an enthusiastic team. Volunteers are vital to ensure the success of our events and we have various events in Southampton, for which we always require the help of volunteers.

 We are looking for volunteers at Sky Ride to help us at the event.

Previous experience of marshalling at events would be advantageous but not essential. A full briefing is given before the event and you are only allocated tasks you feel you can do. Volunteers usually work in teams and have fun whilst still giving something back to the community; you will not be on your own and may even meet new friends.

Due to the nature of the events all applicants must be over the age of 16. Marshal hi viz vests and a limited edition Sky Ride T shirt will be provided for each volunteer as well as a packed lunch on the day.

If you are wondering if you can volunteer for just some of the event and also have time to participate in the event, the answer is yes, you can do both! We can allocate you specific time slots to volunteer and then you can still enjoy the event on your bike with friends and family. Why not volunteer as a community group or club or even colleagues from work - we can allocate you a zone within the route, so you can all remain in a similar area. Whether you just have a couple of hours to spare or the whole day, we would welcome your help.
