I am sharing a message from the Madison Parks Department because it's important. The City has been able to host two Ride the Drives per year, one in the downtown area and one in a neighborhood. June 7 is of course, the downtown event. Parks staff, as well as those from Police, Traffic Engineering and others work hard to make this a great event, but we also need volunteers.
The City of Madison and Madison Parks are pleased to bring Ride the Drive back for its seventh year on June 7, 2015 from 10am – 3pm. Ride the Drive is a community event that turns a 5-mile loop of Madison's signature streets into a public promenade that is open to bikers, walkers, rollerbladers, and those out to share in the experience and fun atmosphere.
Please help support this great community event by joining our team of volunteers.
Assistance is greatly needed at the crossroad intersections along the route to ensure that participants can safely enjoy the event. There are a variety of other positions available including bike ambassadors, information station guides, set up and tear down volunteers and activity helpers. Shifts vary from 2 hours to all day; please consider joining us for the event! Have more fun by asking a friend to volunteer for the same shift.
If you have any questions or you are interested in volunteering, please e-mail RidetheDrive@cityofmadison.com.
Thank you for your consideration and support of this community event! Hope to see you Sunday, June 7.
