BOULDER, CO (BRAIN) — For a few thousand cyclists, the ride up James Canyon to Jamestown and back to Boulder is just perfect. But flooding last fall not only washed out the road but displaced most of the town’s residents, and Boulder’s cycling community continues to raise money for their relief.
This Saturday, Jan. 11, during the USA Cyclo-cross National Championships, starting at 4 p.m. Boulder’s Kitchen Next Door restaurant will donate its meal sales to the Cyclists 4 Jamestown relief effort. And the group is inviting cyclists and ’cross spectators to enjoy a dinner and a beer tasting at the restaurant, knowing proceeds are going to help out Jamestown residents. In addition, Pro Peloton is providing two mechanics who will be wrenching for donations at the Nationals. Their tent will be in the vendor area.
“Cyclists 4 Jamestown is a coalition of Boulder cycling cubs that came together to help rebuild Jamestown,” said Brian Worthy, Vermarc USA’s general manager. “The friendly people of Jamestown are well known to local cyclists as they stop by the store there or ride through. And many not only lost their houses but the land that their houses were built on.”
Vermarc USA is a Cyclists 4 Jamestown sponsor.
All funds raised by Cyclists 4 Jamestown will go to the newly established Greater Jamestown Community Fund and directly to the residents of Jamestown for rebuilding efforts.
