Colorado Cyclists Raise Money for Town Destroyed by Floods



About 

Cyclists 4 Jamestown is an informal organization of volunteers representing the cycling community based in the Front Range of Colorado.  Jamestown, Colorado is a wonderful small mountain town in the foothills northwest of Boulder and for years has been a very popular destination for cyclists.  The residents of Jamestown have been very gracious toward us for many years.  Now, they are really hurting badly and we want to help them in any way we can to bring their town back from the 100 Year Flood of 2013.

For more information, please contact our organizers. This event is presented by Wednesday Morning Velo and Boulder Cycling Clubin cooperation with many other cyclists, local businesses, and volunteers.

About the Cyclists 4 Jamestown Event

 

When: Saturday October 19th. 7:30 am to sunset.

Where: Beech Aircraft building upper parking lot above the McGuckin’s Warehouse out on 36, on the west side 1/4 mile south of Neva Road.

What:  A one day event where you can come and meet leaders of our cycling community including some pro road and mountain bike racers, from past and present, make a donation for Jamestown, and also buy some cool stuff in our silent auction. And we’ll have food, coffee, and beer, music, and more.  

Pledge/donate/volunteer: There is no minimum, but many organizations and individuals have pledged support of $100, and even up to $1,000 or more.  Think about what you paid for your last set of tires, new kit, Garmin, entry to the Triple Bypass, or that “extra” bike you just bought, and then open your wallet to some people that are really hurting.  With a $100 donation or more, you as an individual or your company will be recognized on this website and in other ways.  Indicate any amount you wish to donate in the body of your text. As pledges come in, they will be added to the list below. Or, click here to donate to the silent auction or offer to volunteer your time.

How are the funds allocated?  We are partnered with the organization “Rebuild Jamestown”, which is collecting funds to restore access, rebuild infrastructure,  and support people who have lost their homes.  More information is available athttp://rebuildjamestownco.org/.  You can donate on their website and the funds will go to the same place, but we encourage you to donate on our website or at the event, itself so the magnitude of the cycling community’s support of Jamestown can be measured.

Additional details:

  • The event will happen rain, shine, or snow.  You are encouraged to ride your bike there, meet up with friends, ride, and then come back and stay a while.
  • We expect to attract some well known pros from past and present to come out and meet and greet.
  • Local businesses are encouraged to donate some food and/or schwag to the event, as well as the silent auction.  Please contact us if you are interested!
