Current opportunities

We are looking for friendly and enthusiastic volunteers to help with cycling and scooting-related activities in schools in Dumfries, Dalbeattie and Annan and surrounding areas. I Bike activities are a lot of fun and can be really rewarding; what could be better than helping children to ride their bikes without stabilisers for the first time? You will help our I Bike Cycling Officer and school staff to deliver cycling and scooting-related activities in schools like: learn-to-cycle sessions, cycle skills in the playground, led cycle rides and Bikeability cycle training. I Bike Dumfries and Galloway is a well-established project that promotes cycling, scooting and walking to school, and for everyday journeys in leisure time. It is run by Sustrans in partnership with Dumfries and Galloway Council.
