Traffic Alert for May 2–4
The USA Cycling Collegiate Road National Championships will be held in Richmond, May 2-4, 2014. Approximately 400 athletes from 100 universities will compete in a time-trial course in downtown Richmond that passes the Library's front door on Friday, May 2; on a shorter criterion course just to west of the Library on Saturday, May 3; and on a road course that will also pass the Library on Sunday, May 4. Organizers hope that the event will draw a crowd of about 10,000, people based on the number of competitors and schools involved in the race.
NGS Conference Volunteer Training
Volunteer training will be held on Monday at the Greater Richmond Convention Center. Bag stuffing starts at 8:30 am in room B-20, also called the Governor's Room. Training starts at 9:00 am in rooms B13–B14. One half of the volunteers will stuff bags while the other half is training, then switch. Room Monitors and “Ask Me" volunteers will train first, then stuff, then take a facilities tour. Volunteers who just work registration do not need to take the tour. The goal is to be done by 12:00–12:30 pm. But with 2,000 registrations it could be as late as 1:30–2:00 pm.
