Volunteering for GLR

Volunteering is one of the best things you can do to be a part of the club.  When you ride, you have a great adventure.  When you volunteer, you are part of everyone's adventure.

Much of this year for GLR is focusing around rider safety and keeping our costs low.  Insurance has skyrocketed.  We broke even last year and this year with the new costs and not raising prices, it will be a challenge.  We add that to concerns over health and COVID-19 and it's going to be a serious challenge. I'm confident we are totally up to it!

There are MANY things you can do, no matter what your situation is.  We have a spreadsheet for volunteering for specific jobs relating to each ride like pre-driving, volunteering at the start or to pick up cards or offering to SAG.  Many of these jobs can be done without external contact, so it's easy to be a part of the club and contribute even if you need to keep your distance.

There is also a lot of work to do on the front of taking flyers to local bike shops, spreading the word about rides on local boards and helping out with our website.  We also have a number of new routes we are working on so if you have time and are good with Excel and RWGPS or have a great idea for a new route, just let Michele know.

If you can volunteer, sign up on the spreadsheet or send Michele an email at rba@greatlakesrando.org.
