Volunteers Make Bike for Breath Happen!
Bike for Breath is a one day bike tour that will take place in Foster City on July 8th. Riders join teams and fundraise for the event. They also train to take on one of four different ride distances 10, 18, 50 or 62 miles. They need your support out on the course to help them reach the finish line.
We have several opportunities available on event day, in the days leading up to the event and on the day after the event. We are looking for volunteers to register riders as they arrive at the beginning of the tour, organize and hand out food and water, make sure riders stay on the marked course, and provide Support and Gear (SAG) as needed on the ride.
Volunteers should be prepared to work out side in warm sunny conditions. We have several different levels of assistance, so can work with you to find the correct position for you!
