July 6th to 16th: RBC Bluesfest Bike Parking

This is still our biggest fundraiser and we are so grateful to run the Bike Parking at Bluesfest, thanks to super-volunteer Charles Akben-Marchand (former Board member and President). You can sign up as a full Bike Park volunteer when Bluesfest volunteer registration opens on May 24th. Make sure you act quickly because the perks (free admission to the festival) mean full volunteer spots fill up fast. If you have fewer hours to commit, you can join Bike Ottawa volunteers for just one or two shifts at the Bike Parking. You'll get a free T-shirt and have a great time! Please email our Events Corodinator, Felicity (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) with any availability you have, especially on weekends (July 7-9 and 14-16).
