Volunteers Needed - Timetrial Bicycle Ride

 

Last updated 11/16/2015 at 8:43am



Once again Borrego Springs is being put on the global map with 106 entrants and 120 riders representing twelve nations all competing in the 6, 12 & 24 Hour Timetrial Bicycle Ride.

Sponsored by the Borrego Springs Chamber of Commerce & Visitors' Bureau, the event is a qualifier for Race Across America (RAAM).

Each year, the race continues to grow with 2014, its first year, seeing only 61 entrants and 70 riders. Borrego Springs has the opportunity to be listed as an official stop during RAAM as "The Last Oasis.".

This years Timetrial Bicycle Ride has the Borrego Springs Resort as the host hotel but more volunteers are needed to make the event an even bigger success then it has already proven to be. To do that we need to position our community to offer services, food and entertainment at Christmas Circle and along Palm Canyon on Friday and Saturday, November 13-14 for the support crews (each rider travels with two such vehicles, one RV and one suv/car/truck) and media (global, as many of the international riders travel with media crews from their own countries). It doesn't have to be free offerings, it just has to be something there to entertain them during their down time.

Please contact volunteer coordinator Joe Cussen joec@rockisland.com 360-298-1148 to help (4-hour slots).
