RLCT 2009 Volunteers

RLCT 2009 Volunteers

I'm glad to report that, thanks to the many persons who came forward to offer their services, most of the positions, including all the key ones, have been filled at this early date. It's quite a burden lifted from the shoulders of the organizers to know that the event will again be fully supported and all services provided in the stellar way that riders have come to expect. Once again, from the RLCT organizing committee, sincere thanks to all those who have responded - we could not do it without you.

Robert Trotter Co-ordinator

Special thanks also to the Perth Road Village Association who will be selling juice and snacks instead this year in Perth Road Village due to the closure of the store.

The 2009 edition will follow a slightly altered route although it will still cover about 70 kilometres. Full details on cyclocross.org.
