You'll know her from Registration at the Bike Virginia Tour, long time Volunteer Jarla Ulman. She is one of the people that makes sure our event goes smoothly. [caption id="attachment_6671" align="alignright" width="259"] Jarla and Jeanne, dynamic volunteer duo. Jarla is on right.[/caption] Jarla's been with our event since 1999. She's a smiling face and helpful hand that coordinates our registration volunteers and personally helps make sure our riders have a smooth check-in and good start to their adventure. On September 8, 2013 Jarla helped host another event, the Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia's Cycle Fest. This four year old event raised $4,5000 this year, "more than doubling last year’s funds raised, to benefit the Wounded Warriors Project, the JCCNV, and Hazon, which creates healthier and more sustainable communities." When I asked Jarla about the JCCNV event experience she said, "on a large or small scale, the needs for a successful ride are the same: good routes, plenty of good food and beverages at rest stops, and a ready smile. Thank you Bike Va for training me so well."
