CCC Volunteers Needed

To make sure this year's CCC is another memorable one, we need your help! If you've volunteered before, we'd love to have your help again this year. Volunteering for the century is also a great way for new members to get to know their fellow bike club members. There are plenty of roles to fill and there's no reason you can't help out and ride as well.

If you enjoyed a volunteer position last year, here's a chance to get your "dibs" on it for 2014. If you enjoy working with a friend, have them join you! We'll be calling club members over the next few weeks about helping out with CCC.

To volunteer, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator Cathy Popovitch at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or (309) 533-3309. Cathy and her volunteer committee will be soliciting volunteers and passing them on to their appropriate section chairs. If you have already contacted a chair you've worked with before, Cathy will get your info from them so you will be entered on our list of volunteers. Remember, ALL volunteers receive a free CCC 2014 T-Shirt, as well as the knowledge that they are helping out a good cause. Make sure to give her your T-Shirt size!

Also, please consider supplying some baked goods for the food stops when you are contacted about volunteering. Baked goods need to be dropped off at Stephan Paca/Kristina Mucinskas' house at 1120 W. Edwards, 217-766-2604 just before the CCC Friday night or Saturday morning from 8am until 1pm.

Come Ride with Us!

Sharing the cycling experience is what makes riding more enjoyable and one of the reasons that the Springfield Bicycle Club (SBC) sponsors rides virtually every day of the year. Members have come to appreciate the wide variety of destinations, distances and pace to accommodate cyclists of different abilities and skill levels. [more]
