Volunteers needed for Grand défi Pierre Lavoie

The town of Pincourt is looking for at least 30 volunteers to help welcome more than 1,000 cyclists during the 8th annual Grand défi Pierre Lavoie, rolling through the Vaudreuil-Soulanges region on June 18 & 19.

The 1,000-km event, that will see the cyclists pedal from Saguenay-Lac Saint-Jean to Montreal, will include a stop in Pincourt, which has been chosen as an official rest point during the all-night event.

Volunteers will work between 11:15 p.m. to 9:00 a.m. welcoming riders and vehicles and leading them to Chêne-Bleu High School, where they will sleep.

Others will help encourage the exhausted cyclists who will be fatigued from the challenging night ride.

“There’s no doubt this night will be a very memorable time,” say organizers.

The Grand Défi Pierre Lavoie aims to encourage Quebecers to adopt a healthy lifestyle on a regular basis.  A t-shirt will be given to each volunteer..

To register as a volunteer contact Simon Grenier, Pincourt Director of Recreation and Community Services, at 514 453-8981, extension 230, or at s.grenier@villepincourt.qc.ca.
