    1. Thanks Ros! Stay tuned and we will be in touch when we are setting up the volunteer roster. Since biking in Brampton builds our community, there is a place for riders and volunteers!

        1. Janet, I will let our volunteer organizer know, and send her your contact info, thanks! We are happy to have volunteers, as we are expecting around 500 riders for our Jun 20th Bike the Creek event.
