Opportunities for Greatness!

The 2021 Downer Brisbane to Gold Coast Cycle Challenge takes an enormous effort to organise and simply would not be possible without the generous help of a large team of volunteers. Keep scrolling to view roles and apply today!

Becoming a volunteer on B2GC is all about learning new skills, meeting new people and having fun. There are a wide variety of volunteer roles available at the start and finish sites as well as along the bike route. Roles include general admin, distributing food at rest stops, cheering on the riders, customer service, being a marshal out on the bike route, helping load bikes into trucks, handing out fruit and many more.

  • WE SUPPLY YOU WITH
  • A vest and hat
  • Insurance cover
  • Certificate of Appreciation
  • Sunscreen
  • A meal (if you work more than four hours)
  • A briefing on your role and responsibilities

Did someone say $250 gift voucher*? That’s right – if you register to volunteer by Monday August 30th you’ll go in the draw to win a $250 bike shop voucher from our partners at The Bike Shop (Shailer Park). *Please note the voucher will be distributed on the day of the event.
