Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, we've placed some restrictions on volunteering activities that involve leaving your home to ensure the safety of our volunteers.
You are very welcome to apply for any of our current volunteering opportunities.
However, there may be a delay in processing your application. And you may not be able to get started properly in your role until regular volunteering starts back up.
Our volunteers can now carry out some small actions on the National Cycle Network when alone or with a member of their household. With the exception of those city areas with tightened lockdown measures currently in place.
Lots of people give their time to help look after the National Cycle Network routes in their area.
They carry out regular route checks and clean or replace signs. They cut back vegetation and pick up litter.
All of the activities they carry out help to make sure the Network is safe for everyone to enjoy.
They are our eyes and ears on the National Cycle Network.
As well as helping to promote Sustrans and their local routes, they also keep an eye out for bigger problems on the path so these can be repaired.
We all lead busy lives. So if you’ve got a couple of minutes spare, there’s still loads you can do to look after your local route:
Many of our volunteers host regular task days to carry out bigger activities over a larger stretch of the National Cycle Network.
These task days are a great way to bring everyone together and have some fun whilst looking after the Network in your area.
And you may even get a nice hot brew and a biscuit or two.
