Spectators: If you’re coming to watch someone else ride, consider volunteering for the event. We can always use the extra help, and it’s a great way to both see and be a part of the action. As a corner marshall, you’ll have the opportunity to see all the riders and ensure their safety. Shuttling bags to the summit is another great way to see the riders in action and shout encouragement. For those interested in a pure spectator experience, there are a few small parking areas along the route where you can stop and cheer on riders. Some of the best spots are right below the summit with a great view of the course and the grand vista of the valley below. The summit is also an option but note that there is a fee to park at the summit lot ($5 for MA cars, $10 for all others).
Volunteering: This event can’t be run without volunteers, and we need assistance with registration, setup, timing and starting, course marshaling, and the summit bag shuttle (a personal favorite). It’s easy to do, makes you feel good, and we really appreciate it! Just sign up here.
