BIKE RACE HELP WANTED: OPERATORS ARE STANDING BY

The USA Pro Cycling Challenge starts tomorrow and hits Golden next weekend. We’ve got a terrific lineup of events, an amazing crew of volunteers, and the makings of a phenomenal weekend in Golden, but we are still need some volunteer help on race day. If you’ve been thinking about helping out, or you haven’t been but it sounds like a cool idea, this is the time to check in.

From Craig Champlin and Mary Topping on our volunteer team:

Volunteer to help Golden host the Stage 6 start of the USAPCC bicycle race – Sunday, August 28!!

The bicycle race that will be in Golden next weekend is a really, really big deal for our city. The top three finishers of the Tour de France have declined to participate in the tour of Spain in order to come to Colorado!! This event will give us national and international coverage on a scale we have never before seen. It is our hope that this event will give our town a significant boost in tourism and will generally be very good for our town.

It is not too late to participate in this great event! We need help staffing our outreach/ merchandise booths. Share information about Golden with guests of our town. Help sell t-shirts, hats, and cowbells. We have plenty of opportunities. One or two hours of your time would be very valuable.
