Volunteer at The Epic Ride

July 23, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


Volunteering at The Epic Ride is a great experience, with camaraderie, goodwill and loads of fun! Volunteers and bike marshals play an integral role in creating an unforgettable experience for participants of The Epic Ride.

On July 23, participants in the Epic Ride will ride from Greenpoint, Brooklyn to Rockaway, Queens along the Brooklyn Greenway and Jamaica Bay Greenway bike paths.  NPCA is teaming up with the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative, Nature Valley and Riis Park Beach Bazaar to bring the Epic Ride finish line to “the people’s beach” at Jacob Riis Park, Jamaica Bay.  Once at Riis, bikers and beach goers alike can enjoy local food and drinks, live music and a well-deserved dip into the Atlantic Ocean.

Saturday, July 23rd at Jacob Riis Park, Gateway National Recreation Area.
