Boys and Girls Club Asks for Volunteers to Plan Family-Friendly Bicycle Event Ride

Help plan the biggest Salem-Keizer family-friendly event ride ever!

As many know, the Salem Bicycle Club decided to focus on the Monster Cookie and Peach rides. The Watermelon ride was kindof a "tweener," and together the SBC and Boys and Girls Club are creating a new event. The first planning meeting is next week, and the Boys and Girls Club sent out a call for volunteers.
The Boys and Girls Club of Marion and Polk County is recruiting cyclists and non-cyclists to come join our steering committee to support our future cycling fundraiser and the youth bicycling team.

The Club is planning to host its first Cycling Committee meeting to discuss the June 2010 Boys & Girls Club Cycling Challenge fundraiser. This event will benefit the local Boys & Girls Clubs, our new youth cycling development team "Flow Riders" and the regional cycling community. The only way to make this event successful is to develop a diverse group of volunteers to steer this event toward success.

Date: December 7, 2009
Location: Boys & Girls Club - 1395 Summer St. NE - Salem 97301
