Volunteer Ride Support for California Dream Ride: Truck Driver
Truck driver volunteer staff members for the California Dream Ride will be responsible for loading, transporting and off-loading all luggage daily.
Truck drivers will have the opportunity to ride their bikes the first half of each day (until lunch or as decided upon by the ride director), sharing the driving responsibility with the driving partner. After lunch (or as decided upon by the ride director), drivers will proceed directly to the hotel, check in with the front desk, obtain room keys, and off-load luggage to an area decided upon by hotel staff and the ride director.
Truck drivers will be responsible for knowing the luggage coding system and using the supplied rooming lists.
Truck drivers will be responsible for maintaining adequate fuel levels (always more than 1/2 tank) and keeping accurate expense records. Drivers are expected to know the truck vehicle height and to be aware of low overhanging carports and gas station overhead ceilings. Any damage incurred will be the driver’s financial responsibility.
Truck drivers will be responsible for safely securing all supplies and bicycles in the truck box interior prior to departure, maintaining an organized work space inside the box, disposing garbage, and ensuring all luggage has been appropriately loaded and off-loaded. Additionally, drivers will assist with moving supplies as needed for lunches and dinners while on the route. Supplies include but are not limited to ice chests, water coolers, EZ-Up shade tents, tables, supply boxes and food trays.
Basic bicycle mechanic skills: Drivers should be able to change flats and go thru the ABC’s of bike maintenance (Air-Brakes-Chain-Crank-Cassette) to assist riders.
We could also use volunteer help with these Dream Ride roles: on the actual ride, as a rider liaison before the ride, and marketing and flyering at bike events.
