Volunteering at a Ride
Volunteering is quite possibly the best way to learn about endurance. Not only do you get to see what a real endurance ride in your area is like, but you'll also get the opportunity to learn valuable things about how to do your best at the ride and get to know your local endurance community. It's been said more than once that you'll learn more about endurance volunteering just one day than you will completing 10 rides. Browse through this list of "Do's" and "Do Not's" so you can have the best volunteering experience possible (scroll to the bottom for tips specific to crewing).
