Volunteers are the life-blood of any event. If you are interested in volunteering for the Queen City Century, follow the links to register. You can ride AND volunteer for some positions, such as registration. Volunteering is easy and fun--and it really helps. The Queen City Century is not only an excellent bicycle event that brings people from all over the quad-state area to Springfield, but it also raises funds for the Missouri Bicycle & Pedestrian Federation's statewide advocacy work to help create more, better, and safer places to bicycle and walk, and more trails across the state.
