Marshall the ToB and you could secure a place at next year’s Grand Depart
As last year, British Cycling is working with the Tour of Britain to help recruit two thousand volunteer marshals for the 2006 race this September.
The exact locations required for marshalling will be revealed once all the stages have had their regional launches.
Once registered volunteers will be contacted with the locations available on the stage in which they have expressed an interest.
Stage 1 – August 29: Scotland, Glasgow to Castle Douglas
Stage 2 – August 30: Northwest, Blackpool to Liverpool
Stage 3 – August 31: Yorkshire, (final route to be confirmed)
Stage 4 – September 1: West Midlands, (final route to be confirmed)
Stage 5 – September 2: Southeast, Rochester to Canterbury
Stage 6 – September 3: London, Greenwich to The Mall
Volunteers who are interested in helping in the 2007 Tour de France can assure their places by assisting at the South East and London stages. Experience of marshalling anywhere on the Tour of Britain will also be considered when selecting people for the Tour de France.
Register an interest in any of the stages of this years Tour of Britain by following this link.
Unfortunately the Tour of Britain can’t pay travelling expenses to marshalling points but each volunteer will receive a goody bag, appropriate training and the safety equipment necessary to for fill their role.
