QCBC has plenty of volunteer opportunities for this year’s Criterium to be held in Village of East Davenport on Memorial Day, Monday, May 28. If you are interested in joining in the fun and are available for any of the slots below contact Dean “Bareback” Mathias at mathiasdebdean@peoplepc.com

Attend our informational Pre-Crit Volunteer Party to learn more about Criterium volunteer opportunities, sign up to volunteer for pre-race, race, and post-race needs, be part of a recycling effort during the Crit, meet race directors and shift leaders, provide feedback to make the race more enjoyable and safer for riders, volunteers, and spectators, and take a walk around the course.

The party will be held at 11th St. Precinct (Mounds St. side) on Tuesday, May 1 from 6:00 - 7:00 pm. Doors open at 5:30. Pizza and soft drinks will be provided.
