Volunteer Opportunities

Behind any great event and trail is a group of incredible volunteers. Race directors always make it a point to thank the volunteers at the event because without them, there would be no event and no trails worth riding. Let's support the sport we love by stepping up to volunteer at local events and trail maintenance days. Below you may find a list of events and the volunteer positions that are needed. You may also visit the Stewards of the Sequoia's website for more trail maintenance opportunities.  Please email Ernest at to sign up or to get more information.


October Events


The SSFTA is in need of volunteers for events in the next two weekends. This Saturday (10/18), the SSFTA will return to Caliente to host a rest stop for the Kern Wheelmen’s Spooktacular ride! Ernest and Kristabel Garcia-Diaz will be setting up the tents, tables, and food for the riders, but they are in need of a few extra hands to help out and make the day more exciting. If you are not riding in this event, please consider volunteering at the club’s rest stop. This is our chance to give back to the cycling community, so come on out! Contact Ernest if you are available to volunteer any time on Saturday.

The following weekend, Saturday, October 25th, will be our fall BBQ and poker ride. We are in need of three volunteers to for the Poker Ride. Volunteers will set up in three separate locations in the foothills and hand out playing cards to our riders. Contact Kevin Schmidt for more information.


Helmets are required on all rides because mountain biking can be a dangerous activity, even while just hangin’ around before or after a ride!

The SSFTA is a fun social group and our invitation to ride is not an assumption of any liability whatsoever on the Club’s, member’s, sponsor’s, or affiliate’s part. The terrain and group-ride dynamics can be extremely variable and can possibly exceed any rider’s ability at any time. The SSFTA is not responsible for accidents or ignorance on yours or anyone’s part.

Your decision to show up and ride with SSFTA or any of its members, affiliates, sponsors, et al., expressly waives your right to blame anyone else for your or others poor judgment, mishaps, equipment failures, dumb luck, or any other “lame-blame-game” or excuse you or others may harbor or concoct.

Speaking of equipment failures, if yours does, someone else might be able to fix it but you should be prepared to deal with it without counting on others. Wear proper clothing and by all means come prepared to hydrate and nourish yourself before and during the event. You should also consult with a physician before attempting any exercise (and you should consult with a psychiatrist if you have any other issues). Always carry clear identification and insurance cards.
