Putting on an event of the size and quality of the Tour de Grandview Cycling Classic takes the cooperation and hard work of an entire community. As the Tour is a not-for-profit event, volunteers provide a large chunk of the foundation for this community favorite.
Volunteering for the Tour de Grandview offers a unique opportunity to support a beloved community event, meet pro cyclists, and also feature your business.
