Volunteers Needed - BC Summer Cycling Events
Great events depend on a great team! There are a number of volunteer opportunities now available across the province. If you're racing full-time this summer and can't volunteer yourself, why not get your "support crew" to lend a hand? Moms and dads, friends, partners, brothers and sisters can chip in - everyone's welcome! Not only do volunteers get a bird's-eye view of the race, but also have a chance to contribute to your sport and meet new people. Apart from the "warm and fuzzies" you get from volunteering, you might also score goodies such as a t-shirt, free food or a VIP invite to the post-event wrap-up party! Upcoming events in need of volunteers include:
Tim Horton's Road Nationals
Mt 7 Psychosis DH
BC Blind Sports Pilot Riders for the BC Summer Games
Tour de Gastown
Provincial Track Championships
