VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

The 2018 Citrus Tour will be on May 5th and 6th, 2018.
We are in need of amateur radio volunteers, if you are an amateur radio operator come on out and help us with the event. This is the closest you can get to emergency communications training, without the emergency.

We are pleased to announce that after 30 years of amateur radio working this event, 2018 will be the first year the amateur radio side of the Bike MS Citrus Tour is being sponsored by the West Central Florida section of the ARRL.


Join us on MAY 5th & 6th, 2018 as we support the Mid-Florida chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, in their largest fundraising event of the year, with 800 - 1,000 cyclists on the (mostly) rural roads of Central Florida.

Our start/end points are Fantasy of Flight in Polk City, and the Omni Orlando Resort at Championsgate. Route details will be published once they are finalized, typically 30 days before the start of the event.

This website is geared to amateur radio volunteers and planning committee members but all Citrus Tour volunteers are welcome. If you are not yet a licensed amateur, but would like to become one, let us know by using our contact us page. We'll give you all the details.

Volunteers assist in a number of roles, including:

  • Rest Stop Support
  • Supply Truck operator
  • Mobile Rover (patrol course, in vehicle too small to transport a bike)
  • SAG/Greenway (patrol course, able to transport bike/rider off course)
  • Shadow (travel with MS Society officials, to provide an on-air link)
  • Ride Marshal (on-air bike, patrolling course as a cyclist. This position has additional requirements, so please contact us for info. All skill levels welcome.)
  • Law Enforcement liaison

  • And More!
