What is Volunteer Day? This event is for the people who sign up to volunteer at the Century. The Century Committee recognizes that the volunteer’s service may not allow them enough time to ride during the Century event on September 21, so we offer this Volunteer Day to thank them and give them a chance to ride. A free lunch is provided plus the opportunity to ride the routes. Choose routes of 25, 50, 75 or 100 miles.
During the lunch, committee members will be available to answer questions and explain job assignments. This is also a wonderful way to get to know other HBC members and fellow volunteers.
For the first time in 2013, the HBC sponsored a three day bicycling event in historic Williamsburg, Virginia. Eighty HBC'ers attended and judging from the feedback and comments received it was a great success. We will once again sponsor the event in 2014, with the format largely unchanged from 2013. The event will be held from Thursday, 10/30 to Sunday, 11/2 and like last year, will include three nights lodging (Thursday, Friday and Saturday), a group dinner on Friday evening and plenty of bicycling on Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning.
Cue sheets for approximately 20 different ride options are provided with distances ranging from 3 miles to over 70 miles. A wide variety of route options including many miles on dedicated, paved bike trails make this event suitable for the novice, casual rider and the experienced long distance rider alike. You will be free to lead a ride, follow along with another leader or strike out on your own. Or you can just relax and enjoy the food, history and shopping that Williamsburg has to offer.
The cost for this event, which includes three nights lodging, three hot breakfasts, friday dinner, three hospitality nights with wine, beer and snacks and cue sheets for the rides is $210 per person, double occupancy. A brochure containing the event details in a handy printable format can be found here. There is a registration form in the brochure, or you can use this registration form. Complete event detail can be found on the HBC Williamsburg Website here.
Please let me know if you have any questions - I look forward to seeing you all again in 2014!
