Tour de Victoria needs 500 volunteers

More than 500 volunteers are needed for Ryder Hesjedal’s Tour de Victoria.

Volunteer positions are available for everything from road marshall to rider package pick up.

“This is a great opportunity to be part of an amazing cycling event and volunteer in your own community. The ride goes through 12 municipalities in Greater Victoria and there is wide-variety of volunteer positions, so we’ve got something for everyone,” said Seamus McGrath, event co-ordinator.

The Tour de Victoria is now in its third year and expects to draw more than 2,500 cyclists to ride throughout Greater Victoria, Sept. 20-22.

No cycling experience is necessary to volunteer. Interested volunteers can check out available positions and register online at www.tourdevictoria.com/volunteers/volunteer-overview.
