Volunteers are needed for: Activities at the Information Center on tour day Photography Flyer distribution Tour material distribution and collection This year there will also be a bicycle Tour de Funky Chickens, so volunteers are also needed to: Help the riders on tour day at rest stops Promote cycling at the Information Center Provide mechanical assistance for cyclists at the Information Center and rest stops.
