Being the organizer, or volunteer, at a brevet is a time consuming but rewarding experience. It's enjoyable helping others to meet their goals. The riders appreciate the support and encouragement given to them by like minded folks who know what they are experiencing and how to help. It makes quite a difference when a rider is having doubts about their abilities. I have been on the receiving end of such encouragement many times. It's nice to have a chance to give some back.
