To all the Escape New York Volunteers,
We recently shared our decision not to move forward with our ride this weekend. Recognizing that this is not the outcome that any of us hoped for, I want to thank you for your extraordinary contribution to Escape New York. 
I am so proud of the work that you did this year. All of you deserved to see the riders triumphantly arriving at festivals and finish lines, to hear the music and cheerleading squads, and to have a day filled with the joy of cycling and community. I am sorry that you did not get to experience that this year. 
As we've considered how to handle the upcoming weather, I have been more impressed with our volunteers than ever. You are a dedicated group. We are lucky to have so many volunteers willing to spend the day outside in a rainstorm (although we would not want you to need to do so) as well as so many volunteers who have helped us navigate the last few days. Thank you.

What makes Escape New York possible, and a unique, amazing experience for all participants is our generous volunteers. The ride is all about NYCC members giving back and drawing new members in from the community around us by coming together to put on an amazing cycling event that gives the registrants a taste of what riding in NYCC is like. For detailed descriptions of available positions that need to be staffed please Click here to learn more and sign up. 
If you've volunteered before, you'll have an opportunity to share what you've done. If you are new to it, don't worry - just sign up and indicate what you think you might want to do and someone will follow up and make sure you have something fun to do!
If you have any questions or concerns, please e-mail [email protected] and someone on the team will get back to you.
