The missions of volunteers are diverse and varied:
– Welcome: at the show or the village, you will be the first contact festival goers have and will need to help direct them and respond to questions.
– Registrations: you have a privileged contact with festival goers on one of the different stages of the registration process. Understanding IT tools (I-Pad, computer) is recommended. A good humoured nature and a smile is a must.
– Signaller: this is the post that needs the most volunteers. You are in contact with the participants: you give them directions and watch over their safety. The participants are thankful for your presence and hear and take in your encouragements. Outdoors, the weather can make this role difficult.
– Feed stations: this role consists of putting in place and looking after the feed stations. They are planned for each organised race and ride. There is both physical handling of goods and contact with the participants.
– Logistics: this team looks after the construction and pulling down of structures before and after the event, whether this is at the show area or the races. This post is physical and needs a good understanding of manual professions.
– Signage / taking down signage: Before all events you will prepare the route as best as possible. It’s your signage that will mean festival goers can take part in events without getting lost on the trails. Once the races & rides are finished, it is time to take away all signage and all trace of our presence. Outdoors, the weather can make this role difficult. A good physical condition and understanding of the land is needed
– Opening / Closing race: On your motorbike you will open and close the timed races and the rides. Outdoors, the weather can make this role difficult. A good physical condition and understanding of the land is needed
– Test loop Brigade: During the event you’ll be on your bike to ensure the signage is correct and ensure the safety of test loops. Outdoors, the weather can make this role difficult. A good physical condition and understanding of the land is needed.
– Safety & Security: health professionals, are you able to lend a hand? You are more than welcome throughout the weekend. Whether you prefer being outdoors or close to the village events, the participants need you.
Make your choice and we try to respect this as best as possible according to the event needs. Whatever your gender, whether you ride or not, whether you are available 1, 2, 3 or 6 days… we welcome all volunteers over 16 years of age in the big friendly Vélo Vert Festival team to accompany us on the 2018 edition, the 1st to 3rd of June 2018.
