Pedal MCR’s success relies on the commitment of its volunteers to the groups aims. We work at a grass-roots level, with all members of the group being local cyclists. We rely on the local knowledge and practical assistance of volunteers. Not only does this give us legitimacy, but we seek the input of everyone involved to the direction our work should follow. In all our relationships, both internal and external, we seek to be equitable and open and to work to the highest standards of inclusiveness and sustainability.
We need the following people to take up volunteer positions, if you want to get involved please complete the volunteer application form by clicking here.
