2017 Benidorm Consignment Sale

The Benidorm Consignment sale with be held on Saturday 5/6 from 9AM to 5PM and Sunday 5/7 from 10AM to 5PM.

The Eastern Bloc Cycling Club has a long tradition of helping out our sponsor with the sale by assisting shoppers as well as set up and breakdown of the event. Volunteer shifts are typically 4-5 hour blocks but any help you can provide is always appreciated. Anyone who has volunteered in the past, please feel free to chime in on how much fun this can be. You get to enjoy the company of friends, be outside, and talk about a bikes all day long. Since most of us do that anyway, why not help the shoppers while we are at it? ;)

The key area where EBCC members can help is in keeping a vigilant eye. The sale attracts large crowds, particularly on Saturdays, and bicycles have been stolen before. Anyone leaving with a bike should have a shop printed receipt in hand. If you see anything that appears suspicious, notify a shop employee ASAP. There will be a brief volunteer orientation at the shop on Friday at 6PM. Please try to be there, particularly if you are volunteering in the afternoon to avoid any day-of confusion. On volunteer day please arrive a few minutes before your shift.

Please sign up to volunteer your time by responding to this thread and I will update the list. Saturday morning is usually the busiest time so the more the merrier!

Thank you to everyone that came to volunteer their time at the Consignment Sale. Without your help, your diligent eyes, and support, this event would be a challenge to pull off. The event at Benidorm Bikes has certainly become an expected event within the community. The feedback is great and we love getting people on bikes! Your energy and guidance has helped people and families find the 'right' bike for their use. We will continue with this event and look forward to your help again next year. Thanks so much! Now hopefully we will get to see you on a ride or at the shop.
Ride safely, Jan, Doug, Pete, Jodi, Charlie, Rob, Adam and Dan
