Volunteers are needed for the Yadkin Valley Tour De Vino held on May 18.

“Help is necessary at the event to assist with the registration table and to man rest and water stations along the route,” said rider organizer Richard Moore.

“This year is going to be very exciting because we are expecting lots of rider participation through the four ride options,” said volunteer organizer Richard Moore. “Riders can opt of a 31, 50, 71, 0r 100 mile course.”

The Yadkin Valley Tour De Vino gets its name for passing several vineyards and wineries in the Yadkin Valley wine region before returning to the Elkin High School.

Registration starts at 7 a.m. and the ride begins at 8 a.m.

Riders pay $35 to enter before May 3 and $40 after May 3. A registration form may be submitted online.

Riders who sign up also receive a free tasting ticket to the festival too. All proceeds for the ride go to The Reeves Theater Restoration Project.
