Bike MS: City to Shore Ride Communications Volunteers are essential to the safety of 6,000 cyclists on the road ride weekend. This vital group of volunteers provide open lines of communication ensuring the safe travel of cyclists ride weekend. Although a HAM Radio Operators License is a requirement, there are positions available for all volunteers; those without a License are encouraged to register.
Communicator responsibilities include both stationary and mobile positions along the route each day.
- Stationary volunteers are positioned at identified key locations/intersections to ensure continuous radio communication coverage on-route, notify command central of additional support needs/requests and areas of concern.

Regardless of the assigned position, Communicators are a reliable group providing a high level of support along the route ride weekend. As a member of the 250+ route support volunteer team, you will be provided with all materials required to stay informed and tactically ready to ensure a safe ride.
As part of Society Risk Management Policy, all volunteers operating a motor vehicle on behalf of the Society are required to complete a background check. You will receive a separate email with the background check instructions.
