Can't wait!  The event was such a charge.

Anyone riding out (weather permitting) to the event, let me know would love to join.

Comment by Megan on September 17, 2014 at 3:35pm

I would like to ride out if the weather cooperates.  Looks good now but I'll touch base with you closer to the weekend.

I wish I could go to this - such a fantastic, fun event! Last year was smiles all round, despite the pouring rain! I'll be at a conference in Halifax. Rats! Enjoy, and fingers crossed for good weather!

Comment by Paul van Dongen on September 18, 2014 at 10:06am

Last year was such great fun and the rain even added to the experience. Count me in. In her absence, I'll try to do my best Alexx Hooper impersonation.

Thanks for posting all!  Should be a great day.

Here is a copy of the latest correspondence.



Good Morning, Everyone

Thank you so much for agreeing to help us at the Tour de Black Creek Bike Race on Saturday, September 20.
I am attaching an agenda for the day's events, some information on volunteer roles and responsibilities, and information for race marshals.  We have a fantastic team of organizers who have been at many of our bike races - so please be assured that there will always be someone close by to answer any questions you may have on the day.
We will have a "sign-in" sheet at the Registration Desk - please sign in when you arrive at the Center.  We ask volunteers work in teams of two so that you will always have a "buddy" with you in case one of you has to leave your assigned area.
Justin Terry is the Race Coordinator and Rick Gosling is the main contact for the day.  Rick's cell phone number is 416 305-3007.
Carol and Brenda are the Registration Supervisors - they will be the first people you meet at the Registration Desk.
I am sure we will all have a great day - and the Bike Race will be a fantastic experience for the children.  Thank you for making it possible to give the children this wonderful experience!
I look forward to seeing you on Saturday!

I am interested in riding there as well, but wonder if anyone could recommend a good route, as I recall dan posted one last year, but most drove due to the crap weather. Thanks
