Our Volunteers Are What Make Ride the Rim So Much Fun!

People are excited to be able to ride their bikes in the national park without car traffic. Cyclists will have questions and our volunteers are the front line representatives of the Park and the Event Organizers.  Volunteer needs include parking attendantsand rest-stop attendants. 

Please fill out the Volunteer Form if you are interested in volunteering.  Thank you in advance.    

Parking Attendant

Volunteers and Park Staff will  be stationed at North Junction and Park HQ directing vehicles to safe parking areas designated by Park Staff. Expected hours for this position are between 7:30 AM to 2:00 PM.

Rest Stop Attendant

Volunteers are asked to help stock snacks as needed, keep rest stop areas clean of debris, answer questions about Crater Lake National Park as asked, and provide support and encouragement to participants. Because the East Rim Drive is closed to vehicular traffic, volunteers at those rest stops located on the inside of the route are expected to work 10 hour days as we do not allow vehicles on the route during the event, with the exception of Emergency Personnel.  These ‘out on the rim’ rest stops  include Cleetwood Cove, White-Bark Pine, and Dutton Ridge.  Volunteers at North Junction and Park HQ may work shorter shifts since this is where the parking areas have been designated.

Volunteers at North Junction and Park HQ will also be responsible for registration and checking in participants as needed.

We also ask our rest stop attendants to assign a person to use a clicker to count how many people come to a rest stop.  North Junction and Park HQ will each have a second clicker and person responsible for counting participants beginning the East Rim Drive route.

Rest Stop Attendants will also be expected to break down each stop at the end of the day.  This consists of cleaning off table tops, collecting signage, sort recycling, pick up trash, and condense all leftover food, if any.  Expected hours for this position are 7:30 AM to 6:15 PM.
