Each year, cyclists highly praise the volunteer crew along the route. in 2014, 56 individuals, including three kids, made the event a success. Volunteers welcomed and registered riders, served fresh fruit, sandwiches and burritos at rest stops, drove the course to provide SAG support, and offered mechanical repairs throughout the race.
