Volunteer

Join our amazing volunteer team in creating safe streets, a healthy city, and a vibrant voice in Toronto. We’re looking for fun and friendly people to help out with all kinds of roles, from events like music festivals and on-street outreach, to office support, member renewal calls, and street team canvassing for our major campaigns. Volunteering with us also has some great perks, including free admission to ticketed events, volunteer appreciation events, and pizza nights!

How do I know if I’m volunteer material?

Do you love riding a bike in Toronto? Do you love to spark conversations with people about cycling and related advocacy issues? Do you dream of a more bicycle-friendly city? Do you want to get involved with growing Cycle Toronto and creating successful events?

Besides wanting to share your love of cycling with others, you are dedicated, diligent, and ready to help out in a variety of ways. You are excited about creating a welcoming and fun atmosphere and working with Torontonians of all backgrounds.

So, what exactly do volunteers do?

Most of our volunteers join us out on the street or at our events. As a volunteer, you’re a key component of our outreach activities. There are all sorts of roles and events to get involved with:

-Help with Bike Valet at events, such as Pride, NXNE, Buskerfest, Field Trip, Word on the Street, and many more!  
-Tabling & Outreach to support Ward Advocacy campaigns, greeting people at our monthly socials or, or say hello to passersby at our many Bike Month events.
-Trailer Brigade, where you can help transport supplies by bike trailer! 
-Office Support, which includes data entry, permit applications and member renewal calls

You’ll receive dedicated training at one of our regular orientation sessions, then you'll get access to exclusive events, and a one-of-a-kind t-shirt. This is definitely going to be our best outreach season yet, so join us!
