We have two upcoming volunteer projects that are perfect for bike lovers or any individual looking to give their time for a good cause. This Friday August 29th, So What Else is sending volunteers to the annual New England Bike to the Beach Ride. We are excited to once again to join the Bike to the Beach volunteer crew. Cyclist will ride from Boston, MA to Middletown, RI to raise money and awareness for autism.
Volunteers are needed to distribute refreshments to bikers at two rest stations. The rest stations are located at Ray’s Appliance (264 Broadway, Taunton, MA) from 6:00 am to 8:15 am, as well as at the East Bay Bike Path near mile 1.25 (95 Veterans Memorial, East Providence, RI 02914) from 7:30 am to 11:30 am. Volunteers are also needed at the finish line to set up and cheer on riders as they arrive. Riders and volunteers are welcome to enjoy complimentary refreshments at the end of ride party at Tickets Bar & Grill.
Our second opportunity is a bike drive for the great organization Bikes for the World. We will be hosting a collection of gently used bikes at REI Rockville on September 13th, from 12 pm to 4 pm. The bikes will be sent to individuals and institutions in developing countries and used as a form of transport to school, work and health centers. Volunteers are needed to help advertise on the day of and to disassemble the bikes to get them prepped for shipping. Please come and donate a bike for a good cause!
