The RRT Team positioned volunteers at the start/finish line in downtown Cleveland, and also at two RRT refreshment tents farther west of the city. Those who were situated downtown were responsible for signing in the riders of the event as well as event set-up/clean-up. The other two booths handed out water, Gatorade, bananas and other nutritional snacks for the participants. A bike repair tent was also set up at each of the two RRT booths, to assist with efficiently repairing participators bikes as required. Throughout the day, all of the volunteers cheered on the riders as they pedalled for the cause.

The volunteers were motivated to see so many riders helping to support the fight against Diabetes. One thing that amazed them is that even though many of these participants were suffering with this chronic disease, they rode on with determination, not allowing themselves to be slowed down for anything.
