GFH - Chatty

2022 Gran Fondo Hincapie - Chattanooga, TN

Welcome potential Gran Fondo Hincapie - Chattanooga 2022 volunteers! We are excited to be back in Chattanooga for a 4th year and a fabulous weekend of riding! Proceeds will benefit the Bessie Smith Cultural Center, whose mission is to preserve and celebrate African American history and culture through art, education, research, and entertainment. 

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 the Bessie Smith Cutural Center until 4PM 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!
