Join the California Coast Classic Bike Tour Crew!
No cycling or cycling experience required.
Take part in the adventure of a lifetime and volunteer with the California Coast Classic Bike Tour! Whether you are an individual looking for multi-day opportunity, a group looking for a a team building experience, an arthritis warrior willing to share your journey, or an individual looking to join the planning committee, there are various positions available along the route such as supply truck driver/manager, rest stop crew, base camp set-up and more.
The Arthritis Foundation’s California Coast Classic (CCC) would not be a 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. And at the end of the day, you can hear them cheering while ringing cowbells welcoming the riders into camp.
Volunteers receive the same accommodation options as riders, daily breakfast and dinners are provided, as well as camping fees and amenities. While we do not require volunteers to fundraise (we love it when they do), volunteers who decide to fundraise also qualify for CCC incentives!
