Volunteers

Join our team! Recreation, sports, arts and culture create opportunities for leaders to serve their communities. Consider joining our volunteer team and be part of this fantastic White Rock tradition!

On July 15th and 16th, 2017, the City of White Rock present the 38th Annual Tour de White Rock. The tour spans two days and is one of the primary cycling events in Canada and the Pacific Northwest. Many of Canada’s outstanding male and female riders plus a selection of American and international cycling teams will be in attendance to compete for over $20,000 in prize money.

Before the bike racing gets underway, we invite all volunteers to attend the Volunteer Banquet on Thursday July 13th at the White Rock Community Centre.

This is our opportunity to introduce you to the key players, provide you with all the information you need for your position and of course, to thank you for your commitment!

Host Housing is another way to get involved

Host Housing

Enhance your enjoyment of the Tour de White Rock by volunteering to host riders!

For many cyclists, their trip to the White Rock area will be made possible by the generosity and hospitality of a local family. Being a host family is a great opportunity to see inside the world of competitive cycling. In addition, you will have someone to root for at the races. Many hosts and riders develop lasting friendships and will look forward to each July when they can get re-acquainted.

Hosting is easy. There are only three requirements:

  1. You need to provide the riders a place to sleep (an air mattress will work!)
  2. The riders need access to a shower
  3. The riders need a garage or other enclosed space to store their bicycles

Hosts are not responsible for providing meals or transportation, although riders will appreciate permission to store items in a refrigerator and access to kitchen appliances.
