Profile: Natalie Ross (@ Bike Marrickville)

Who am I?
Natalie Ross. I have been living with my family in Marrickville for about 20yrs, and I have been a cyclist for even longer than that!

What do I do?
I am the treasurer and membership officer for Bike Marrickville, a local bicycle user group that encourages people in the Marrickville area to enjoy cycling for recreation and commuting, and works with Marrickville Council to improve facilities for cyclists.

Are you a recreation volunteer?

Do you work the local BBQ on a Saturday for your favourite club? Do you timekeep at local swim meets? Do you coach a junior sports team? Do you serve on the committe of a local recreation group? Do you wash all the team uniforms so they look great when they run out for their next big match?

We want to hear from you and the group you support. Send us your story, a photo and feature on our new Volunteer section of Rec Post!

Tell us a bit about your group....We are a not-for-profit organisation aimed at running seasonal Ultimate leagues in the Inner West and Canterbury-Bankstown areas.

We aim to support our members by providing access to training sessions, social events, and helping them attend major Ultimate events.

The league originally started in 2009 at Steel Park and have played at various fields throughout the Inner West. We currently play at Tempe Reserve.
