STCC at the Collin Classic 2017

posted in: Club Events, Club News | 0

STCC is back at the Collin Classic! The date has moved to July 22! STCC will be running the BEST Breakpoint for this very popular rally (at least, in our humble opinion).  Additionally, we'll be providing Ride Marshal's for this event and will have a presence in the Rider's Village. This has been one of the biggest and most successful outings for your club over the last few years and we want to keep it rolling.

Breakpoint Volunteer.  At the breakpoint, we’ll have iced watermelon (of course!, its our thing!) for everyone coming through, courtesy our great friends at Market Street.  But, best of all, people will get to see the bright, smiling faces of all our volunteers.

Ride Marshal.  The Ride Marshal's play a huge part in helping to ensure cyclists have an enjoyable and safe day out.  You will intermingle with the rides on the various routes and in many cases be the first responder to any incident.  This will range from helping change a flat to providing comfort and direction for accidents until event personnel arrive.  More details here.

Rider Village. The last area where we need a couple of volunteers is manning an information tent at the Rider's Village.  If you are not planning to ride the event but want to contribute to STCC's success, this is for you!

Sunday Watermelon

We need your help to make this a success. This club runs on our volunteers.  We need sign holders and traffic control (for the bikes).  We need people to cut the melon, set up banners and keep the food and drink refreshed to ensure participants in the rally have a safe and fun day out!  In July, we're expecting higher temperatures, so your presence is more important than ever!

REGULAR RIDES CANCELLED THIS DAY ONLY!   BUT RIDE TO REST STOP!

Oh, and most of our volunteers come from the rides that we run on that day.  You’ll leave our regular spot at CTEC in Frisco, pretty early in order to make it to the breakpoint in time to help.  You’ll spend a couple of hours onsite and then hop back on the bike and head home.  And yes, this will give you your Saturday miles for the National Bike Challenge!

You get to see the smiling thankful people at the first rest stop of the rally.  The people that stop here are ones doing their first rally, first road ride, riding with their family and they are excited have you brighten their day and offer the encouragement needed to finish the ride.  Great day all around – all that AND if you want you get the chance to ride your bike with THE best club around – Shawnee Trail Cycling Club.

Join us and please let us know you plan to come!  Registering is of course, free but it gives us an idea of our additional volunteer needs.
