Project Bread is again sponsoring the Ride for Hunger on Sunday, September 14. This ride raises funds to support feeding programs all across the Commonwealth. With the high level of unemployment, our efforts are needed more than ever. The Crocker Public Service Group was a vital part of raising over $250,000 last year. Our team provides crucial safety links to the 1,000 cyclists in this tour.
The ride will start at Lake Cochituate in Natick. The MetroWest route goes through Sherborn and Millis, then returns. The TourWest route traverses towns including Holliston, Hopkinton, Grafton, Northborough, Hudson, and Wayland.
We will be supplying communications support along both the 25 and 70 mile routes. Positions include mobile operators, operators at critical intersections with marshals, and rest stop hams. Last year, an injured rider was aided over the noise of Speen Street to the great relief of the Project Bread staff. The 144, 222 and 440MHz bands will be used at different locations, courtesy of the Minuteman Repeater Association.
