Volunteer in Long Beach for the 18th Annual Los Angeles River Ride

Walk Bike Long Beach is looking for volunteers to help cheer on and feed the riders of The 18th Annual Los Angeles River Ride, when over 2,000 riders are expected to ride along the river trail, through downtown Los Angeles to Long Beach on Sunday, June 3.

All proceeds go toward the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition (LACBC), organizer of the LA River Ride and a nonprofit organization whose mission involves ensuring communities across the county offer healthy, safe and fun places to ride bikes.

The ride offers five routes to choose from starting at the Autry Center in Los Angeles. Riders participating in the 100- and 68-miles rides will be traveling through Long Beach and will likely be in need of some extra motivation from volunteers.

There are multiple opportunities available to volunteer, including at the Long Beach hub, according to Walk Bike Long Beach, a local chapter of the LACBC. Those interested can sign up by filling out the form here.

Volunteers will earn a t-shirt, LACBC membership for a year and a transferable opportunity to participate in the ride for free, according to the announcement.
