Bike Walk Connecticut has a lot of events lined up for us to encourage others to join our great group! We need members like you to consider volunteering at the events we have lined up in August and September. Giving just 2-3 hours at one event would be a great help.
What will we need from you?
We just need you to show up at the event for the time you sign-up to volunteer. Our outreach committee will bring all the materials and instructions on what you need to do. We just need dedicated members to spread the word to the rest of Connecticut on why Bike Walk Connecticut is a great organization to be a member of!
Here are some of the events we will need to staff with volunteers:
Sunday, August 18 from 1-2 p.m. at the East Hartford Park and Ride lot at Main Street and Silver Lane for the "Week a Year Ride" Kick-off on the East Coast Greenway. This year's ride goes from Hartford to New York. There will be approximately 45 cyclists. We are looking for a Bike Walk Connecticut representative to speak to the group about the progress being made to make Connecticut more bike friendly. This volunteer can ride a stretch of the ride after speaking.
Friday, Saturday and Sunday, September 6, 7 and 8 at the Simsbury Septemberfest. We will be sharing a table with Bike Walk Simsbury and the Farmington Valley Trails Council. The festival hours are Friday from 4-10 p.m.; Saturday from 11a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday is TBA.
Saturday and Sunday, September 14 and 15 at Live Green CT in Norwalk. We will be sharing a table with the Merritt Parkway Trail Association and the East Coast Greenway Alliance. The event is Saturday from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. and Sunday is TBA.
Sunday, September 22 at the Criterium and Cyclefest in Hartford. We will have a table at the Cyclefest. The hours are TBA.
Saturday, October 12 at the FitKids Expo, which is part of of the Hartford Marathon events. More information to TBA.
