Volunteer Information

2023 California Coast Classic Bike Tour + Remote Ride Volunteer Opportunities: Take part in the adventure of a lifetime! No cycling required.

Be a part of the California Coast Classic Bike Tour Crew! Registration to be a Volunteer is now closed.

Multi-day Tour Volunteer from 09/30/23-10/07/23 (San Francisco to Los Angeles)

The Arthritis Foundation’s California Coast Classic (CCC) would not be such an amazing success without the support of our energetic and hard-working volunteers. Our volunteers are selfless, dedicated and unbelievably committed to making the CCC a memorable experience for everyone involved. They get up very early and go to sleep late. During the day they greet riders with warm smiles and words of encouragement. At the end of the day, you can hear them cheering while ringing cowbells welcoming the riders into camp.

Our volunteers receive the same accommodations as the riders, your breakfast and dinner are provided as well as your camping fees and amenities. While we do not require volunteers to fundraise, we love it when they do!

There are various positions available along the route such as supply truck driver/manager, rest stop crew, base camp management and more. We also have one day volunteer opportunities.
