Big Bear Lake, CA – The Amgen Tour of California Stage 6 is hosted by Big Bear Lake Friday May 19.
The Amgen Tour of California is an immense undertaking and they need YOUR help in order to have a successful and safe day of cycling racing.
The Local Organizing Committee are estimating a need for about 150 volunteers for a variety of jobs that will need to be done.
The vast majority of volunteers will be used as Course Marshals for the event. As the roads close, we need volunteers to monitor the roads, ensuring that cars and pedestrians do not get on the course from streets, driveways, trails etc.
Each volunteer will be provided with a volunteer cooler bag complete with water, food snacks, and t-shirt, on the day of the event. A volunteer Thank You celebration will be held for all volunteers after the completion of the race.
The Amgen Tour of California has the same ranking as the Tour de France and Big Bear Lake is thrilled to be chosen to sponsor the highly prestigious time trial. This is the first Time Trial at high altitude and will effect the outcome of the overall race. Volunteering to help at the Amgen Tour of California is an opportunity to be an ambassador to the wold cycling community. Help us showcase Big Bear Lake!
No cycling experience required. Volunteers must be 18 and older.
