Call for Volunteers – Tour de Fat 2011

Tour de Fat returns to Tempe, Arizona on Saturday, October 15th and we need volunteers! All proceeds of the event go to local bicycling groups, which get funneled into local programs to help you as a cyclist. Attendance at Tour De Fat has grown each year so we’re looking for 300 volunteers to make sure everything runs smoothly.

We promise it won’t be all work – there’s play too! Volunteers have a great time organizing the parade, selling tokens, and pouring beer, in order to make sure the attendees are having fun too. Shifts are only a few hours so volunteers can enjoy the festival too. With all the bikes and music, how couldn’t it be fun?

Volunteers will receive:
– A free Tour de Fat t-shirt
– Free beer tokens
– Access to an area set up for exclusive use by volunteers

Bike Count: March 29 – 31

Calling all volunteers for the first bi-annual Tempe Bike Count! It’s just like it sounds, we’re counting people riding bikes in Tempe. Our goal is to document the number of people currently cycling and monitor how the number changes over time. We’ll publish the data collected and provide it free to other groups that can use it to improve cycling in Tempe.

The count will take place over three days in the morning (7:00am to 9:00am) and the afternoon (4:00pm to 6:00pm) during commuting hours.

  • Tuesday, March 29
  • Wednesday, March 30
  • Thursday, March 31
