The Aviva Women’s Tour has launched a new Volunteer scheme, giving local cycling clubs a chance to exchange their volunteer time on the race with sponsor prizes and giveaways!
The Aviva Women’s Tour is looking for cycling clubs local to the 2016 routes to join a newly launched Volunteer Initiative which exchanges volunteering time for exclusive prizes, giveaways and promotional opportunities for your cycling club.
Each Stage of the Aviva Women’s Tour has two Chain Reaction Cycles Sprints and two STRAVA Queen of the Mountain’s (QoM) points along it. It’s at these points that crowds of spectators gather to watch a snippet of the action and therefore we are reaching out to the cycling community. We are looking for you to collaborate with us and provide us with the much needed volunteer marshals at these points to help maintain the safety of the race for the Pro riders as well as spectators.
Each club that signs up and volunteers on the day will receive a bespoke bundle of cycling goodies from our official race sponsors and partners, including products from the following:
- HIGH5 Nutrition
- The Cycle Show
That’s not all, SKODA are giving away 4x pairs of RideLondon 100 Sportive places and 2x pairs of RideLondon 46mile places to the first clubs to sign up to the initiative. To ensure you are in with a chance of claiming this fantastic opportunity clubs will need to register with us before 23rd May.
As well as all of the above, participating clubs will be entered into post-event competitions and prize draw to win official Aviva Women’s Tour merchandise and goodies.
You can view the full Club Initiative pack by visiting www.thetour.co.uk/volunteer, which also includes details of who to contact to get involved.
