Rest Stop Coordinators and Volun-Sponsors

We have 5 rest stops (Stewart, Magnolia, Mars Hill, Lake Payne, and Pleasant Hill) that provide refreshments, bathrooms, and support to riders along the route. Rest stops offer a unique volunteer opportunity to local businesses and organizations that choose to sponsor a stop. Monetary sponsors have first right of refusal to coordinate and provide volunteers at their stop in order to interact with community riders. Sponsors can also choose to have their stop coordinated by AAFT volunteers.
