LDTR has 3 main areas where you can volunteer:

Trail Building

Generally once a month a group of volunteers lead by our Head Trail Builder, head out and repair our trails. We try to alternate our trail build days between Saturdays and Sundays. Our builds finish with a BBQ and soft drinks. 

Parks Victoria have implemented a new volunteer tracking system called Parks Connect. To volunteer at a trail build you will need to create a profile (once only) and register to attend. If you don't register through Parks Connect you wont be able to help out at the trail build (for insurance reasons).

To find out when the next trail build is check out events tab, Facebook page or forum.


LDTR has a committee that manages all of LDTR's activities including the races we put on, trail building and liaising with Parks Victoria.

To run a committee we need:

  • President

  • Vice President

  • Secretary

  • Treasurer

In addition we also have:

  • Events coordinator

  • Trail building coordinator

  • IT positions

  • Social media & marketing positions

  • General committee

We meet every 2 month for a committee meeting which includes something to eat and drink.

If you would like to get involved please contact us. No experience is required, all that is needed is a passion for mountain biking and Lysterfield.
