How You Can Help!

The Blue Ridge Brutal is a fundraiser for The Ashe Civic Center. As such, to maximize the benefit we need to minimize the cost of running the event. One of our most significant requirements is good people to help in many areas. If you can find the time to help organize, run or assist in any way, we would greatly appreciate it.

Here is a sample of some of the areas we need help together with some indication of the maximum time commitment:

  • Providing technical help on Riders bikes (need to be competent bike mechanic) – Ride day
  • Putting all the goodies in the Goody Bags each Rider will get – One morning
  • Putting out the direction signs prior to the Ride – One day
  • Sweeping selected parts of the Rides to clear gravel etc. – One day
  • Standing at key junctions to direct Riders and assist with safety – Ride day
  • Helping at some Rest Stops – Ride day
  • Helping at post Ride refreshments/entertainment – Post Ride
  • Driving after last Rider along route 163 with sign “CAUTION – CYCLISTS AHEAD” – Ride morning
