Volunteers Needed

Hey folks - just got this message from Capital Vélo Fest and thought I'd pass it along. They're looking for volunteers for their Tour la Nuit night ride... if you can give them a couple hours, please get in touch!

Capital Vélo Fest, on Saturday June 4th,  is almost upon us!

After months of planning and hard work by many individuals, the inaugural event for Ottawa’s annual bike festival at Ottawa City Hall is set to go.  Everything is in place for the Bicycle Rodeo from 11am-4pm, with several local bike stores contributing expertise for educational workshops and prizes for festival goers.

The Tour la Nuit, from 7pm-11pm is also ready to go, with 7 bands lined up to provide live music and Mayor Jim Watson committed to providing some welcoming remarks and starting the ride at 8:30.   However, we are currently short volunteers to help close the streets, which is jeopardizing the event and may require us to shorten the distance of the ride.  

If you are an advocate of cycling in Ottawa and if you are available to help on Saturday June 4th from 7pm-10:30, please sign up on line to volunteer today at as a Road Safety Assistant.  Depending on how many people can be recruited in the next few days, the call will be made early next week on how to proceed.  You can also help by forwarding this email to your family, friends and professional contacts with a personal message for assistance.

Thank-you in advance for any assistance you can provide to make this inaugural event a success.
