What is a Ride Marshall?

JOB SUMMARY: Route Marshals are experienced volunteer cyclists who ride the route to assist in guiding the participants through the event safely. Marshals play a vital role in ensuring a safe and fun event for everyone by reminding riders to observe the rules of the road. When they witness unsafe riding behavior they ride alongside the person to ask them to stop what they are doing and follow Tour rules. If a participant is riding without a helmet or riding in a manner that is dangerous to other participants the Marshal should report them to Net Control.

Marshals are identified by an ADA Route Marshal bib provided by the event.

LENGTH OF INVOLVEMENT: Day of the event
TIME COMMITMENT: 8 hours plus any pre-training

RESPONSIBILITIES INCLUDE:
Riding an assigned route or portion of a route.
Monitoring the start and flow of riders as assigned.
Helping to enforce the rules of the road by approaching riders if they are:

Not stopping at stop signs or traffic signals
Riding several people abreast rather than single or double file
Passing on the right, not calling out when they pass
Riding too close behind other riders, or changing positions unpredictably
Racing on the route (i.e. riding too fast in a manner that endangers other riders)
Impeding the path of riders on the route rather than pulling off the road.
Reporting the rider number to Net Control if riders are unresponsive to reminders
Reporting the rider number to Net Control if a participant is riding without a helmet so that SAG can be dispatched to pick up the rider.
