Bike patrollers needed for Sherbrooke trails
DestinationSherbrooke is looking for volunteers to complete its volunteer patrols for the Grandes-Fourches bicycle trail network during the summer season. Besides practicing their favorite sport, the patrollers lend assistance and give directions to cyclists all over the Sherbrooke biking network.
To become involved, volunteers must commit to doing three hours of patrolling per week, they must be eighteen or older, own a bike and a helmet, and own a cell phone.
Three training sessions are offered to volunteers to cover first aid, bike mechanics and tourist information. Those selected will show the ability to be courteous, have an interest in physical activity and a sense of responsibility towards the community.
“Whether you are 18 or 70, with an average of 100 or 1000 kilometres of biking a year, does not matter! What we are looking for are involved people with a variety of schedules who come from all across the Sherbrooke territory,” explained Sylvain Roy, who is in charge of the volunteer bicycle patrol.
For more information or to register to be a volunteer, call 819 8211919. Those interested have just until April 8th to register.
