Volunteer in this Beautiful Ride and Support the Buzzard’s Bay Coalition
The Buzzards Bay Watershed Ride is Sunday October 6th – with starts in Little Compton RI (100 miles), Westport MA (75 miles), and Rochester MA (35 miles).
Every year, hundreds of cyclists participate in the Buzzards Bay Ride, raising needed funds to support the Buzzards Bay Coalition’s work to protect clean water by improving the health of the Buzzards Bay ecosystem.
Cyclists choose from three spectacular routes that wind through farmland, coastal villages, cityscapes, cranberry bogs, and the back roads between Rhode Island and Cape Cod to end with a waterfront finish line party in beautiful Woods Hole.
The Watershed Ride is a fully supported event for cyclists of all abilities, with marshals along the route and SAG wagon and mobile bike mechanics following along. At three rest stops, riders enjoy food, beverages, snacks, and bike support. At the finish line, riders celebrate with dinner, drinks, live music, and complimentary massages. Shuttles are available for riders who need transportation before or after the ride.

BE A BIKE MARSHAL!
If you feel comfortable riding the route and assisting other riders with encouragement and positivity, can fix a flat and make minor adjustments, and communicate with ride organizers for additional assistance – then you can be a ride marshal!
You’ll let us know how much of the route you plan to ride (100, 75 or 35 miles) and then you’ll marshal along the way. Marshals will take turns covering the course and “sweeping” last riders, and can be shuttled forward as they wish. Please sign up to marshal on or before Friday, September 27th, so we can arrange assignments and get everyone the necessary gear. Note: if you have your own pump and tools, we’ll ask you to bring them.
As a thank you, ride marshals will receive volunteer tshirt, event tshirt, ride pint glass, refreshments, dinner, and transportation back to their cars.
Interested in being a rockstar bike marshal volunteer?
Please email Allyson McCalla at Bike Newport by Friday Sept 27th.
