Volunteers Needed For The 2004 BMC Software NYC Cycling Championship

The BMC Software New York City Cycling Championship scheduled for Sunday, August 1, in Lower Manhattan, needs volunteers to handle marshaling, hospitality and expo area duties.

With over 100,000 fans expected to view the race, marshals are needed throughout the 1.2-mile course, which starts and ends at the corner of Wall Street and Water Street. Security volunteers and helpers in the food and beverage and sponsor areas are needed to help make the event a success. The third annual BMC Software NYC Cycling Championship, part of the Pro Cycling Tour (PCT), provides New Yorkers with a unique opportunity to be part of a major public sporting event.

To sign up for the BMC Software New York City Cycling Championship, contact Threshold Sports at 610-676-0390 ext. 103 or via email at Volunteers can also visit or to fill out a volunteer application.

Friends of Second Marsh Bike Rally

Fundraising Bike Rally, August 22nd.

This is a fun family event, not a race, and will start off at the GM headquarters parking lot (1908 Colonel Sam Drive, Oshawa), and wind its way through Darlington Provincial Park and on into the OPG Green Corridor area. Participants will be given a passport and there are stations along the route where they will be required to answer questions relating to the environment. They will have their passports stamped, and then they can proceed to the next station.

The event gets underway at 8:30, leaving the GM headquarters parking lot, and will finish around 1:30 p.m.
There will be entertainment and prizes for various fun categories.

Pledge forms are available.
