Enhance your enjoyment of the Giro di Burnaby by volunteering to host an out of town or country cyclist or team!
For many race participants, their trip to the Giro would not be possible if it wasn’t for the generosity and hospitality of local families who participate in the The Giro di Burnaby Host Housing Program. Host families make a valuable contribution to the sport of cycling!
Hosting is easy – there are only three requirements:
- Provide the cyclist(s) a place to sleep and shower for the duration of BC Superweek (July 6-17, 2017 / 11 Nights);
- Provide a safe storage place for bike and gear;
- Although not responsible for providing meals or transportation, many riders will appreciate permission to store items in a refrigerator with access to kitchen appliances.
Every year, the Giro di Burnaby race committee sees relationships formed between cyclists and their host families that are memorable and lifetime lasting. Being a host family is a great opportunity to see inside the world of competitive cycling while exposing your children to the discipline and commitment required to be a professional cyclist. Do you want someone to root for at this year’s Giro di Burnaby? Sign up to be a host family today!
