Volunteer Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Capital Vélo Fest!

Capital Vélo Fest Inc. is a non-profit organization based in Ottawa with the mission to “Inspire people of all ages to ride a bike more often”. We organize cycling related events and activities, and partner with businesses, governments and cycling advocacy groups to increase the community focus on cycling for the betterment of the environment, personal health and encourage the increased use of bicycles as a form of transportation and recreation.

Our event volunteers will enjoy a fun day of cycling-related activities, and come away with an increased knowledge of cycling with the satisfaction of contributing to developing Ottawa’s cycling culture and karma.  Volunteer appreciation includes cool lights for your bike, a cycling themed tshirt,  SMOOCHes and an invite to our annual appreciation celebration..

If you are part of group (club, school, non-profit, charity, business, etc) and can provide us with 10 or more volunteers, we will bring SMOOCH to one of your future events!  You can use this opportunity for fund raising by selling SMOOCHes or simply to add some excitement and tasty pizzazz to your member gathering.  Send us a message on our contact form if this interests you.

Our events have fun positions for both youth and adult volunteers.  To be a volunteer, you must be 16 years of age or older, and be available for the duration of your assignment that you sign up for.  Most event volunteer shifts are 4 hours in duration.  All positions are eligible for Ontario school curriculum requirements.

Currently, we are not seeking any event specific volunteers.  If you are interested in volunteering to assist with the planning of our future events, please contact our Executive Director, Dick Louch.
