Volunteer

Potomac Pedalers is an all-volunteer organization with hundreds of members generously donating their time and energies to keep our club going. Our members do everything from leading rides, to answering phones, to editing articles, to updating our website.  Volunteers also participate in bicycle education, safety instruction, and advocacy. We sponsor a Community Services Program that provides funding to public agencies, non-profit organizations and individuals for bicycle-related community programs. In keeping with PPTC's charter, the program focuses on bicycle education, public safety, the development of facilities that benefit cyclists, and the promotion of bicycling as a positive, healthy activity. Applications are screened and awards are based on merit. Since 1992, PPTC has distributed over $75,000 for more than 70 projects in the Washington area.  Our Executive Committee positions are elected in while other committees handle different business areas that keep us up and running.

Currently Volunteer Needs:

  • LEAD A RIDE - Potomac Pedalers has so many ride options because people like you lead rides! There would be no rides if not for our volunteer ride leaders. We always need new ride leaders!  Please consider offering to lead a ride you would like to do. You can co-lead a ride until you're ready to fly solo.
  • ADVERTISING/MARKETING 
  • ORGANIZE/PLAN AN EVENT
  • HELP DURING AN EVENT
  • MEMBERSHIP DRIVE

If you are interested in volunteering, please CONTACT US

Thank you for volunteering.  And remember, without volunteers Potomac Pedalers wouldn't exist!


Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Potomac Pedalers! We are all-volunteer organization with hundreds of members generously donating their time and energies to keep our club going. 

Throughout the year we have different needs for different tasks. Sometimes it's helping out at a special event like the Nokesville Picnic, and other times we're looking for members to take on positions on one of our committees. Please check back often to see how you can help!

Our members do everything from leading rides, to answering phones, to editing articles, to updating our website. In addition, we have several committees who handle different business areas such as:

  • Executive Committee - oversee the operations of the club;
  • Ride Committee - puts together our fantastic ride schedule each month;
  • Special Events Committee - organizes all of our get-away weekends and other fun cycling events.

Take a look at our Club Officers and Committees page to get an idea of how many people volunteer for our various tasks. Yet even with all of these great volunteers, we're always looking for more members to help out.

We know that many people are reluctant to volunteer because of the unknown. You may say to yourself "I don't know anybody" or "I can't do that job." We say "Don't worry!" We find that once someone becomes more involved with the club, they really enjoy their experience. It's the best way to get to know fellow cyclists, and to form relationships with other members. By volunteering, you may just meet your next best friend! 

Thank you for volunteering.  And remember, without volunteers Potomac Pedalers wouldn't exist!
