The ARROW club and Wastenaw Co. ARPSC are short a few amateurs to help out with the One Helluva Ride cycling event Saturday July 13th. The OHR event is one of the the largest cycling events in the area, as it traverses 4 counties and includes more than 1500 riders.
Amateurs provide SAG support, for riders who 'sag' behind or otherwise experience mechanical difficulties and need help. I helped out last year with this event, and it was a load of fun driving around and helping people who have flats, or heat exhaustion.
You don't necessarily need a radio to partake in this event. You can even ride along with another person and act as the radio operator if you don't want to be the one driving around. Jeff W8SGZ is organizing the event, and needs a few more people to help out at the event for shifts during the day.
If you are interested in helping out or want more info, send Jeff an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that this is a conflict with the pickup of donated equipment in Warren. I'm still looking for a few more people to come help load equipment that morning starting at 10 am. If you can help out, (especially with a pickup truck), please send me an email!
