Wildflower Volunteers Needed

San Luis Obispo Bike Club Makes A Difference

The San Luis Obispo Bicycle Club was formed 44 years ago in 1971. Since that time they’ve actively promoted bicycle riding throughout SLO County. wildflowerwideThis year, they’ll contribute over $75,000 (including  $50,000 to the Bike Coalition!) to support local bike groups and activities, bicycle advocacy organizations and programs, and the communities in which the Bike Club rides and holds their events.

One of the ways the Bike Club is able to make such generous contributions to the bike community is from the proceeds of the two annual Century rides that they put on:  The Lighthouse Century and The Wildflower Century. Both of these rides take months and months of planning and countless volunteer hours.

The Bike Club is looking for a few more volunteers to help out with the Wildflower Century on April 25th, 2015. Aside from the great feeling you’ll get from volunteering, you’ll also get a free Wildflower Century shirt, an invitation to the Volunteer Brunch and an invitation to the Pre-Ride (you’ll get to ride the course before the actual ride.)

As of right now, these volunteer positions are still open:

Cleanup – Team
Food Ordering – Truck Loader Team
Stop: Highway 41 – Team Lifting
Stop: Shadow Run – Team Lifting
Stop: Shandon Lunch – Early Lifting
Stop: Shandon Lunch – Late Lifting

Volunteer at the Lighthouse Century!

Every year the San Luis Obispo Bike Club puts on not one but TWO Century rides, the Wildflower Century and the Lighthouse Century. The amount of organization and hard work that goes into these efforts is astounding. All of that effort pays off, allowing the SLO Bike Club to contribute $75,000 each year to support cycling and related causes (including The Bicycle Coalition) in San Luis Obispo County.

If you’re interested in lending your support to the Bike Club, now is your chance! Every year, 250 volunteers work to make the Lighthouse Century possible. The Bike Club is still looking for about 25 volunteers to help out on September 27th, 2014. In particular, they need volunteers capable of doing some heavy lifting (50 pounds). All volunteers will receive a Lighthouse Century T-Shirt and an invitation to attend both the volunteer brunch on Sunday, September 28th and the volunteer bike ride (the Pre-Ride) on Saturday, September 20th.

There is a list of Volunteer Job Descriptions, and general information about the Lighthouse Century here.
