Volunteers Frequently Asked Questions

Even with minimally supported brevets there is a need for volunteers to staff the start/finish zone and rare intermediate controls along the route. What follows is some information about volunteering and worker's rides.

San Francisco Randonneurs covers the expenses for registered volunteers incurred when performing volunteer duties in support of the riders. Examples would be bridge tolls, purchase of requested supplies, gas for travel to and from a remote intermediate control, permit fees.
