EVENT SET-UP & CLEAN UP: Aid with any set-up or clean-up such as tables, chairs, signs, food, trash barrels, supplies and any other items.

FINISH LINE: Cheer on riders as they complete the ride. When the riders return, check off riders’ bib numbers to ensure they are off the route.

RIDE MARSHAL: Volunteer cyclists serve as safety monitors along the route giving general guidance on rider safety, etiquette and emergencies.
MOTORCYCLE MARSHAL: Uses own motorcycle to patrol the route. Maintain radio communications with safety and support personnel.
SUPPORT & GEAR (SAG): Use own van, SUV, truck, etc., to patrol the route. Respond to requests from safety personnel and Motorcycle Marshals for rider pick-up. Transport riders and bikes to nearest rest stop, medical station or bike repair location. Maintain radio communications with safety and support personnel. Must have a valid driver’s license and proof of auto insurance. The MS Society will reimburse the cost of gasoline upon written request.
REST STOPS: Rest Stop volunteers run locations on the route where riders can stop for light refreshments. We provide you with the food; all you need to bring is a folding table, chairs and decorations. This is the best way to see the riders in action! Volunteers pick up their rest stop supplies the day before the event at our Start/Finish line, Priam Vineyards, in Colchester, CT.
HAM RADIO OPERATOR: Provide communication to aid in the safety and welfare of all participants. Volunteers should have their own radio equipment with enough backup batteries to last the entire day.
Thank you again for your continued support of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Connecticut Chapter. Together we can create a world free of MS.
