We want YOU at Bike Month Events!

Hi Strollers & Rollers,
May is Bike Month, which means it’s a busy time of year for our group and our city! With so much happening, we need help from our community to make these upcoming events a success:

Bike to Work Day – Thursday 5/9
6:30am-9am Volunteers needed to count cyclists, hand out swag bags and goodies, outreach at tables and just to provide a smile and a wave to passersby. Food, coffee and swag available for all volunteers!

Bike Rodeo – Saturday 5/18 9:30am-1:30pm
Volunteers needed to blend up frosty smoothies with the Bike Blender, help fit kids’ helmets (Ken McCroskey will give you on-site training,) answer cycling questions from parents and kids.

Arts & Green Festival – Sunday 5/19 10am- 3:30pm
Volunteers needed for outreach at our booth, coordinating the Bicycle Valet Parking and bike tuneups.
*All volunteers who help for 2+ hours get a delicious Chipotle burrito for lunch!
*Plus, the first 15 people who sign up to volunteer get a special discount coupon from our Bike Valet Parking sponsor Bua Luang Thai Cuisine!

Consider joining us for an hour or two, or more! Volunteer help is needed to promote Albany Strollers & Rollers, discuss upcoming projects related to walking and biking (bike lanes, sidewalk conditions, bike rack locations, etc.), get feedback from the community about what their needs/interests are, and to give away, and sell, bike lights and talk about our Bike Light Program. I have volunteered at all of these events in previous year and have always enjoyed meeting new people. And if that wasn’t enough to get you to commit, there’s free food and giveaways available for all volunteers!

Please respond to Amy Smolens to let us know which event and time you are available to help with.
Thanks a lot – look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at the events!
