St Leonards Park, North Sydney is our Start Site for Ride North Sydney; the set-up takes place the day before the
ride (Saturday) with Equipment Crews and anyone else that can help out as well. On event day Volunteers have a
very early start at approx 5:15am, ready for the thousands of cyclists that will soon be coming through. Jobs include
handing out pre rider registration kits, on the day registration, start site marshals, information, equipment and
refreshments. This role requires a person who is a very early morning riser, friendly, helpful, able to think quickly,
able to take direction and manage a large crowd. This job is short time-wise, but will be busy for the time there.

Travel options
Cycling will save on that ever increasing petrol bill. Or take advantage of the free public transport on offer from City
Rail. Just show the City Rail staff your Volunteer ID card to receive free travel on trains and buses (no bikes on
buses unfortunately). For details of the best transport options for your location, call the transport info line on
131500, or visit the website

First task upon arrival
Your Team Leader will meet and welcome you to the site and present you with your volunteer’s kit. The t-shirt, hat,
and all the goodies are yours to keep. Please put the t-shirt on over your own clothes and pop on the hat for your
own sun protection, this will identify you as event staff. Your Team Leader will then give you further instructions.

Volunteer role
        Setting up early- With an event this size we need to have everything ready before the 10,000 cyclists arrive,
        that includes all equipment, barricades signage involves lots of heaving lifting.
        Start site marshal- With a large amount of cyclists congregating in a relatively small amount of space, we need
        to ensure that the flow of people (with or without cycles) is smooth. The entry process is structured to minimise
        the amount of congestion in the start area however you may need to remind cyclists to move on.
        Entries – pre paid- This is for cyclists who have already filled in an entry form and paid but were too late to
        have their entrant packs mailed out to them. These packs will be given in alphabetical order, and should be
        handed out on request. As entrants arrive, ask their surname, find their pack and cross them off the list.
        Entries – late- For cyclists entering on the day, they need to complete the required forms and pay the correct
        amount of money. Entrants are encouraged to fill in an entry form before queuing and then take it to the late
        entry tent. Riders can enter between 6.00 am and 8.30 am.
        Entries - roving attendants- distribute the entry forms to people waiting in line to make this process more
        efficient. Riders can enter between 6.00 am and 8.30 am.
        Information- Letting cyclists know the procedures for the day, where to go next etc. Check out for the latest updates and event information
        Environment team- Keep the sites clean by collecting the rubbish and make the site shine!
        Refreshments- Managing the water station.
        Toilet/Meal Breaks – Your Team Leader will provide you with breaks throughout the day when possible,
        however if you require a break talk to your Team Leader first to make sure it is safe for you to leave your

Getting fed
Your Team Leader will issue you with a pre-packed lunch on the day. If you require a break just ask your Team
Leader first.

Rest/Water stops locations and times of operation
Rest/Water Stops- There is one Rest Stop and multiple Water Stops along all routes. All Rest and Water Stops
have water, St John Ambulance & toilets and some of the sites will also have Bike Mechanics and food. They are
situated approximately every 15 km.
