John McDonald, who is local co-chair along with Brassard, pointed out the cyclists in the village will also need services. Velo Quebec Voyages will be hiring local people to assist its staff in Ticonderoga.
There will also be opportunities for civic groups to make money by helping during the tour stop, McDonald said.
Velo Quebec Voyages is also looking for a local caterer to feed the cyclists at the school. The tour group has a specific menu and requires breakfast and dinner two days for upwards of 2,000 cyclists in shifts of 600 people each seating.
Interested caterers can contact Brassard at the chamber for details.
A local business is also being sought to operate the bistro, where alcoholic beverages will be served and entertainment provided. An events tent is required. Interested people should contact Brassard.
Velo Quebec operates 60 tours a year on several continents. Their 2010 tours include two-wheeled trips in Europe, North America, Mexico, Cuba and Asia as well as Vermont and the Lake George-Ticonderoga-Plattsburgh tour.
