Volunteer

“Volunteers were fast and efficient, I never got off my bike!”

“The volunteer to rider ratio was awesome. There was everything you could want available and lots of help from the volunteers. I thought they did an outstanding job keeping us focused and getting us back out on the road.”

“The volunteers were incredibly helpful, filling bottles, pinning numbers, getting food, taking garbage … just amazing.”
