**What is a Bicycle Ambassador? **

Bicycle Ambassadors are bike-loving community members that lead by example and help get people on bikes. At least one time per quarter, a public engagement, education, or outreach program will be hosted through this initiative. Ambassadors support the local cycling community by assisting the Borough with community outreach events, engaging and networking with cyclists, educating the public, and making recommendations for infrastructure improvements. This volunteer opportunity has a minimum one-year volunteer commitment. 

Detailed information about bicycle ambassador volunteer responsibilities can be found under supporting documents.
