Putting on an event like this requires a large number of volunteers - and we're still looking for a couple more (wear your volunteer shirt to the Criterium for VIP access!!!!) If you are interested in volunteering, here is the link to the volunteer site with the various positions:

This is also a great opportunity for the OBC to showcase its own involvement in the local cycling community. So, the June 25 Sunday ride departures will be from Tunney's Pasture to give members a chance to enjoy the race weekend events.
 
We will also be setting up the OBC EVENT TENT on Saturday and Sunday, June 24 and 25.  Come on by and watch the racing under our tent!!!

I hope to see a number of familiar OBC faces out at the races!
