There is more information below.  Send an email or review these forms for information only. 


We truly appreciate all the volunteers who very generously donate their time to help our community and we always welcome new volunteers!

Perimeter Bicycling Association of America welcomes everyone to be part of our efforts to promote health, community and fun through a love of bicycling and community service. We have many different types of opportunities throughout the year, especially within 6-8 weeks of an event, and can accommodate individuals or groups whether the volunteerism is for community service hours fulfillment, a team building exercise or just a fun day with some friends.

If you, someone you know, or an organized group are interested in volunteering, please keep in mind that everyone is welcome to be part of the fun! For specific information about how you can help, please see Volunteer Positions  below. For specific information about our route opportunities, please see Aid Station/On-The-Route Descriptions below. Each volunteer who contributes 4 or more community service hours during any event will receive an official event t-shirt as a token of our appreciation! (Sizes may be subject to availability so sign up early).

Our 2014 Volunteer Information Form can be submitted to us anytime for inclusion on our email list.

Our 2013 Volunteer Group Information can be submitted for those who would like to recruit friends, coworkers or business associates to volunteer with them. We will email a Volunteer Callout to everyone on our list approximately 4-6 weeks prior to an event date and fill positions on a first-come, first-serve basis. Below you will find our currently scheduled volunteer opportunities.  We also have opportunities that cannot be pre-scheduled which include mailings, medallion preparation, filing, data entry, t-shirt folding, loading and unloading of trucks and general event-specific organizational preparation.  If you are in need of community service hours, please feel free to call our office to find out about current opportunities.

Aid Station/On-The-Route Opportunities

.Read More

Aid stations are an integral part of the El Tour experience! These stations are located approximately every 8 miles along the route and serve water and food to event participants. All stations are located well off the roadway and volunteers are required to keep a safe distance from the street. We encourage volunteer groups or businesses to make these stations their own and really enjoy the interaction with the riders that are always so happy to see them. Some of our aid stations have been taken care of by loyal volunteer groups and businesses who have been manning them for many years – we will always give them the first right of refusal before going to the waiting list. If you would like to be placed on the waiting list, please send an email to our Route Officials with a contact name, phone number, mailing address and email. Aid Stations are limited to 10 event t-shirts per station. SAG (Support & Guidance) Support Vehicles are located close to, if not at, Aid Stations. SAG Support’s sole purpose is to provide transportation for event participants who are unable or unwilling to finish the event. If you would like to find out more about being part of our SAG Support Team, please send an email to our Route Officials.
