Avon will host Stage 2 of the Colorado Classic bike race on Friday, Aug. 23. The 2019 Colorado Classic is the only women’s standalone professional bike race in the Western hemisphere and will feature top women athletes from around the world. Avon is actively recruiting volunteers to work three or four-hour shifts on August 23 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This is your opportunity to participate in this world-class professional bike race event. 

Volunteers will receive a t-shirt, custom Smartwool socks and other goodies. Colorado Classic is creating a platform of advocacy for gender equity in women’s sports — for cycling and beyond. Show your support by volunteering.
