What do the volunteers have to say?

“I really want to share my happy experience to more people and accelerate more people to join this volunteer team. Gear Up Girl was my first time to be a volunteer and I really enjoyed it. I appreciate that you gave me this opportunity to have fun at this event and meet some new friends. All riders crossed my spot saying ‘thank you’ to me, even gave me hi-five. I can still feel the exciting feeling now.”
