40 volunteers required on Sunday 10th August to help give out food and water to the riders on the RideLondon 100 – this will involve chopping bananas, filling water bottle, and waving flags to cheer them and motivate the cyclists. It's an early Sunday morning shift as we're the first pit stop on the 100 route but it's a great event to be part of – it is early in the route, so the riders are still fresh enough to be very cheerful, and there is a great team atmosphere at the stand.
Volunteers will need to be there at 6am but should be finished by 11. Road closures will be in place for the route, but you should be able to cycle on the closed roads – if you are getting to the feed station at 6, then there won’t be any participants on it. Those who did it last year really enjoyed the early morning ride on closed roads!
All volunteers will receive a RideLondon t-shirt, cap, and a London Cycling Campaign pin-badge, as well as lunch and good company. We'll also be putting everyone's name in a raffle for a free place on next year's RideLondon 100 ride.
LCC website says to be there by 6am but riders are not expected until 7:30 so if you were late it might not be the end of the world..
