The largest cycling event in Hawai‘i would not be possible without many wonderful volunteers who contribute before, during and after ride day.
For the Honolulu Century Ride we need volunteers with many different skills. So we can find a task for everyone who wants to help out. There are tasks before, during, and after the event. So even if you plan to ride, you can still lend a hand! Have a group of volunteers? Or other questions? Feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 735-5756.
Volunteers will receive a HBL volunteer t-shirt. Food / Drinks will be provided for longer volunteer tasks.
