Volunteer with Gran Fondo Baie Sainte-Marie

Thanks to all of the wonderful support our top-notch volunteers provided us, the 2019 Gran Fondo Baie Sainte-Marie was wildly successful! Our riders have been gushing about the terrific assistance and encouragement they received in helping them cross that finish line, and during their post-ride recuperation. Thank you to such a kind, dedicated and hard-working team for a season well done! We look forward to seeing you back at next year’s ride. We couldn’t do this event with you. THANK YOU!

Volunteer positions for 2023 will be available on this website.
