The organisers of the TweedLove Cycling Festival, in conjunction with Alpine Bikes, are looking for volunteers to help make the ten-day bike festival the best ever. Help is needed for all kinds of jobs, from market research and publicity to race marshalling and stewarding.
“Last year TweedLove was a big success not only in numbers of visitors and income generated, but just as importantly, because everyone thoroughly enjoyed the events and the friendly atmosphere. Our volunteers play a massive part in that,” said organiser Neil Dalgleish. “Last year so many riders commented on what a great reception they were given, and to be honest it doesn't surprise me. The Tweed Valley has an amazing population of cycle fans, and they're proud to share the good times our local roads and trails can offer.”
TweedLove aims to increase the smile factor for cyclists even further this year, with new events and an extended ten-day festival programme. As well as calling for local people to lend a hand and join the fun, organisers are keen for visitors to join in the events and volunteer too.
Even if people are only available for a limited time, either before the event or during the festival itself, all help is most welcome, and the volunteers certainly won't go unrewarded.
More information on the festival is available on the TweedLove website
