news Solstice Volunteers Ensure Event Success

A huge “Thank You!” to all of our 2017 MCBC Solstice Fondo volunteers. Once again, this amazing crew rocked it! From setting up the registration/check-in table at 6:00 AM, being on the course keeping riders on track as Course Marshals and spirits high at all of our Rest Stops, to sweeping the course ensuring all riders were able to made it back to the post-ride BBQ, our volunteers made this event GREAT.

What an epic day. Sure it was hot. Yes, the course was challenging with tons of vertical feet climbed. Maybe there were moments when it seemed you might not make it to the end – but we heard just about every rider say that our volunteers made all the difference!

They checked you in, gave you a great send-off, cheered you on, gave you food and hydration at each rest stop, and provided lunch at the post-ride BBQ. Wow.

In fact, if this sounds amazing and you want to be a part of the MCBC Volunteer Roster, email our Membership and Volunteer Coordinator, Jess Willard
