Real Ale Ride Volunteer Opportunities

May 3, 2010

The Bicycle Sport Shop Real Ale Ride is a bicycling event that benefits The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Austin and Central Texas.  It isbased in Blanco, TX and takes place on Saturday, May 22, 2010.  It covers distances from 15 all the way up to 80 miles.  Do you know how many volunteers it takes to cover 80 miles?  If you’d like an adventure in the beautiful Texas Hill Country on a spring day, this is for you!
Our production company, Red Licorice Events, is looking for help in all shapes and sizes!

On Friday, May 21 they need people in Austin to help with packet pickup and to load up the truck with the supplies.  On Friday they need people in Blanco to help mark the course and set up the venue.

On Saturday, May 22, the day of the ride, there are all kinds of positions available.  For example, people are needed at the aid stations to keep the riders stocked on snacks and drinks, along the course at critical turns and people at the venue, helping with food and beverage handouts.

And so much more!  Come out to volunteer and stay for the post ride party!  Did I mention this is the Real ALE ride?  As in Ale?  As in beer?  Yes, the beer will be flowing!  And you’ll be rewarded with a T-shirt, breakfast, lunch, and that rewarding feeling of giving back to the community.  Don’t forget, Red Licorice Events offers their volunteers Pay-It-Forward volunteer points that can be redeemed for credit towards Red Licorice events or merchandise.  You can read about their PIF program on their website.

Don’t keep this to yourself!  Tell your friends, family, the person sitting next to you at the office.  We can’t possibly have too many volunteers!

If you’re worried about driving all the way out there, how about carpooling?  Red Licorice has a spreadsheet in Google Docs where you can register that you’d like to carpool.  Enter your name, contact info, if you’re a driver or a rider, and where you want to meet.  Search who has already registered to see if you can make a match.  This is a do-it-yourself program, so go do it!

Sign up to carpool here.

I hope you’ll join us!  Our volunteers always leave smiling!
