Get involved

This is what Ride Bristol is all about. Bristol’s community coming together to share a few hours of their time to give back to the trails and the community.

There are plenty of opportunities to get involved with RideBristol, and everyone involved in our organisation is a volunteer. Whether it’s joining us for a trail maintenance day, providing some specialist expertise or even joining us as a trustee – we’d love to welcome you into our community.

 You can learn more about what’s involved below.

Dig days

You can see all the available dates below. We usually run at least one day a month in Ashton Court. You can sign up for morning or afternoon sessions. Unless you’re super fit we recommend just a half day session as it can be quite tiring!

Trustee roles

We’re looking for new trustees and dig leaders with skills or interests in community building, legal expertise, social media (running our Facebook and Insta accounts), project management and trail design.

CSR events

We can help you organise CSR days on the trails building berms, clearing litter and fixing the wear and tear. It’s a great team building experience and the results are really tangible for years to come.

Join us at the next dig day!
