Hi all -- Bike To Work and School Week is coming up fast and given our goal is to support cycling we thought we let you know that the BTWW society is looking for volunteers for the Celebration stations in the morning and end of day on Oct. 22-24. Your job would be to: • Help set up and tear down the station • Engage with attendees • Offer food and drink • Encourage people to fill out ballots • Ask people to park their bikes at bike racks • And just be friendly and awesome! They need about 3 or 4 volunteers per station, so pretty exclusive spots! You can expect to be on site for about 3.5 hours per shift. You get a t-shirt, will likely get your photo taken (posterity!), and get to share endless smiles and good times with fellow cyclists! If you are interested, please contact Mia to put your name down or get more info! [masked]
Pace: 3 / 5 Hilliness: 3 - 4 / 5 Distance: 40 - 60 Km Terrain: Road and some mild trails. 2 or 3 hours fun ride for pace 3s. A variety of routes and different leaders but always an emphasis on having a fun and enjoyable ride. Sometimes quite challenging, sometimes nice and easy. Maybe even a swim on the hot days. We will try to post the route as soon as we know it and always welcome new ideas for rides. Please post your ideas in the comments.
