It’s arguably the biggest weekend in Bucks County every year. Tens of thousands descend on Doylestown to enjoy its renowned Arts Festival and experience professional cyclists racing shoulder to shoulder at ludicrous speed in the annual Thompson Bucks County Classic.
And we couldn't make it the success it is without the help of the community that has made Doylestown one of the best small towns in America. This year, as in the past, we have opportunities for you to get even closer to the action and the riders.
One way to do that, is to volunteer as a course marshall. Course marshalls are critical to ensuring the safety of the event for both the riders and spectators. You’ll have a front row seat (and a whistle!) to the action. In the video below, race director John Eustice explains what’s involved in being a Thompson Bucks County Classic course marshall.
Another way to get involved and meet the professional cyclists is to serve as a host family. This is a unique opportunity to support the teams who come to town. You can get a feel for what it’s like in this article by Amanda Rennie.
We’ve made it easy for you to volunteer. All you have to do is go to our volunteer page and indicate where you can help and the times you can do it.
Join the team and become part of the biggest weekend in Bucks County.
