I’m no uber volunteer. There are folks in the BC Randonneurs that put in a million more hours to support the club, but I feel like if you want to see rides happen you have to be willing to put in some effort to make that happen. Start with helping out at one ride and see what happens. You’ll likely enjoy it a lot. Then see if you can fit in supporting a second ride. Every little bit helps and if everyone shares the work it all gets done easily without burning out a few generous folks.
Sure that means maybe you don’t ride every event that you might like to, but that’s life. You have to put something in to get something out.
I’m never going to win a volunteer of the year award, but you’ll always see me helping out on the other side of the table at a few rides.
