Harpoon Point to Point
The Harpoon Point to Point, presented by National Life Group, is a cycling fundraiser to benefit the Vermont Foodbank. Riders pledge to raise money for the Foodbank, enjoy a beautiful ride starting and ending at the Harpoon Brewery in Windsor, VT, and finish with hot showers, fresh beer, a BBQ and live music.

Volunteers are needed to help cyclists at various points on ride day. Tasks include working registration, stocking supplies at rest stops, being course marshals, helping at the post-party welcoming bike riders, working the food line, and various other tasks.
Volunteers receive a Harpoon Point to Point T-shirt, and are invited to join the party at Harpoon for BBQ and beverages.
