Our Tradition Continues
Our 44th Annual Seacoast Century Weekend is September 22-24, 2017 So plan ahead and sign up early. Here's the link to register: https://www.bikereg.com/seacoast-century. We offer two days of riding with scenic 25, 50, 63 and 100 mile routes using the Hampton Beach State Park South Pavilion as our start and finish. You can check in on Friday evening from 4-6pm or on the first day you ride starting at 7am.
New this year, we're offering a loop through Eliot, Maine along the Piscataqua River on the 100 mile route and half price registration for riders 15 and under. We will also be recognizing first time Century riders with a special award.
Riders will receive a Century tee shirt, soup and a roll at the ride's end, support from our well-stocked rest stops, ride mechanics, and support vehicles and Hot line as well as a Bike EXPO on Saturday. One registration fee covers two days of riding. Early registration is $50 for adults and $25 for 15 and under.
If you plan to Volunteer, don't register on BikeReg, just contact us.
Volunteer for the Seacoast Century and Ride for Free!
How about volunteering for the 2017 Seacoast Century? Our GSW Seacoast Century volunteers are a big reason why riders come back year after year. If you've helped out in the past or are considering signing on for the first time, we can use your help. Last year 85 volunteers made our Century a success. If you volunteer, you can ride the Century for free, get a volunteer tee shirt and a bowl or soup or chili. Many folks volunteer one day and ride the Century the other or help out in the morning and ride in the afternoon. To volunteer, please contact Donna Hepp at firstname.lastname@example.org or Mark MacKenzie at email@example.com.
How Can You Help? Volunteers play a great many roles
Prior to Century Weekend: If you want to help before the Century Weekend, we need volunteers to help mark the routes, shop for Century food and supplies, publicity, checking over supplies, and work with sponsors and the Century Bike EXPO. We are also looking at a few folks to take the lead on key roles:
Volunteer Coordination, Century EXPO Coordination, Rest Stop Coordinators, and Communications/Media. We will be hosting a Bike EXPO on Saturday afternoon after the ride at the Hampton Beach Pavilion with vendors from bicycle shops, clubs, tour companies, bike gear manufacturers, etc. as well as a catered meal of soup or chowder.
Century Weekend: On Friday, September 22nd, volunteers assist by loading and unloading the rental truck, setting up Headquarters at Hampton Beach, separating the Century food and gear for the rest stops and then holding early check-in for riders on Friday evening. On Saturday and Sunday, we'll need volunteers to check-in riders, staff the rest stops, support vehicle drivers, assistance with the Rider Hot Line (dispatch support vehicles) and help selling merchandise and checking in riders at the end of the day. On Saturday, we'll also need some folks in the afternoon to assist with serving food and provide information during the Bike EXPO. On Sunday afternoon, we'll need a crew to help with breaking down Headquarters, packing up the rental truck, and delivering the gear back to our storage unit. If you are interested in getting involved with the 2017 Century contact us!
