Once again this year Velo Club Monterey is supporting the Sea Otter by supplying volunteers to the first two Aid Stations on the Gran Fondo route on Saturday morning, April 21st.
By donating your time on Saturday morning, you will directly interact with one of the major Sea Otter events and help the club’s mission to support cycling in our area. As an additional benefit, Luis Zabala is offering once again to host a barbecue/picnic/party at Zabala Vineyard (the second rest stop) for the rest stop volunteers.
Providing volunteers at Sea Otter is also one of the club’s major fundraisers for the year as we earn $700 for our help in supporting these two rest stops.
The first Aid Station is at Gallo/Talbott’s Winery (mile 24) and we’ll need volunteers there from 6:30 to 10:15 am. The second stop is at Zabala Vineyards (mile 43) with volunteers to be there from 7:15 to 12:30. You’ll help in preparing and serving snacks and drinks for the riders. As most of you know a smiling, encouraging face gives a big boost to riders during an event and this is a great way to pay forward all the rest stops you’ve probably encountered in your own rides.
So, we need your help as a volunteer, so please sign up. Simply click on the Volunteer Sign Up below which will take you to an Evite page where you can enter your name, email, and your preference for which Aid Station you’d like to volunteer at. Please note that there is no guarantee that you’ll get your choice of station.
