Bike Month has been very successful so far, the first set of events went very well thanks to the people that volunteered. We are still in need of volunteers for two of our major bike month events.
1. Bike to Work and School Day – Thursday 4/22
The first event that we need volunteers for is the City of Tempe’s Bike to Work and School Day on Thursday 4/22. We need representatives at as many of the free breakfast locations as possible (click the link for the list of locations).
You will be there to hand out fliers, stickers, and information on safe and efficient bike commuting that we will provide to you prior to the event. After breakfast you will also be the group ride leader from these locations to the Tempe Transit Center where we will have a TBAG table set up with more resources.
This event reaches bike commuters and potential bike commuters, it is key in our efforts to promote cycling a viable transportation option in the valley.

2. Valley Metro Great Bike Chase – Sunday 4/25
The second event that we need volunteers for is the Valley Metro Great Bike Chase on Sunday 4/25. The Bike Chase is a family fun ride from Hance Park to Chase Field that includes tickets to a Diamondbacks game vs. the Phillys.
As a volunteer at this event you will assist as ride marshals along the 4.3 mile route, making sure all attendees have a safe and enjoyable ride. We also need volunteers to help with bike valet parking at the Jefferson Street Parking Garage near Chase Field. You will assist people with parking their own bikes on the way into the game, and help match tagged bikes with their owners on the way out. All volunteers will get free tickets to the game, however we will need some volunteers to stay and help keep an eye on the bikes, let us know if you can help us with this as well.
This event is primarily a family event, it promotes cycling among families and children, helps them learn to ride safely, and shows them that cycling is fun.
Click here to volunteer for this event. Fill out the form and check either or both of the boxes: Sun 4/25 – Great Bike Chase – Ride Marshall and/or Sun 4/25 – Great Bike Chase – Bike Valet
Thanks again to all of our great volunteers, you are what make TBAG events successful, helping to promote cycling as a safe, convenient, and fun form of transportation and recreation.
