The sport of randonneuring can be competitive, but the spirit is one of cooperation.  Members should help each other where possible and be cordial to everyone they meet during the ride. 


There are always opportunities to volunteer and none of these rides would ever happen without the dedication of many people.  There are many opportunities to volunteer for the club.  Examples are:

  • Working to add content and maintain the website
  • Providing and managing club photos
  • Helping at the ride start to register people and perform bike checks
  • Helping moderate our forum
  • Pre-ride or pre-drive routes
  • Create new routes
  • FUTURE 2017 and beyond:  Lead a GLR Ride yourself!

If you are interested in doing any of these or have ideas about other ways to make our club better contact the RBA.
