GFH - Chatty

2021 Gran Fondo Hincapie - Chattanooga, TN

Let's try this again...

Welcome potential Gran Fondo Hincapie - Chattanooga 2021 volunteers! We are excited to be back in Chattanooga for a 3rd year and a fabulous weekend of riding! Proceeds will again support Chattanooga Area Food Bank which feeds over 25,000 meals annually to Chattanooga residents.

All volunteers are given an official event t-shirt, a bottle of EVENT WINE (only for those 21 and older), snacks, as well as an invitation to join in the FREE, rider/volunteer festival on the grounds of beautiful Miller Park until 5PM on Saturday. There will be music, food, drinks, and a chance to see many professional riders and celebrities!

Please look over the volunteer opportunities and recruit your family and friends to get involved! We are especially looking for groups to help with rest stops and other areas. We love our volunteer family and definitely welcome your help!
