Volunteers promised first class experience at Tour



Fancy volunteering for the Tour of Britain? You could get yourself a goody bag if you do.

Race organiser Sweetspot is looking for similar number of volunteers (around 1,000)  that participated in the 2010 Tour of Britain and has promised an enhanced experience to reward all of those playing a part in The Tour.

“Volunteers are tremendously important at The Tour of Britain, and all other cycling events in this country, which could not run without their input. We want to make sure than in 2011 their experience is a first-class one and duly rewards them for giving up their time to be a part of Britain’s biggest professional cycle race,” said Mick Bennett, Race Director for SweetSpot Group.

“We are working on improving the information given to people upon volunteering to make the whole process as easy as possible, while also providing every one of our volunteers with a ‘goody bag’ that will leave only positive memories of The Tour.”

Details of how to volunteer will be announced and made available via www.tourofbritain.co.uk once the full route of the 2011 Tour of Britain has been announced at the National Launch in April.

Scotland will be the first port of call for The Tour of Britain 2011 with the Grand Depart on Sunday 11th September, with the Tour finishes in central London eight days later on Sunday 18th September.
