Help connect visitors to the Mississippi River by bike!  You'll need to be able to ride up to 14 miles over three hours in weather ranging from hot and humid to mild and drizzly.  Volunteers are needed to assist in delivering interpretation at rest stops and work as the sweep rider to keep the tour group together.  Rides begin at 10am and end, roughly, around 1pm.  You will be required to wear the blue, NPS volunteer t-shirt.  
Tours begin at Harriet Island in St. Paul, Matthews Park in Minneapolis, and the Boy Scout Base Camp in Ft. Snelling.  Because tours are now a fee-for-service for participants, volunteers are needed who can unequivocally commit to the shifts they choose.
