From Cyclists 4 Jamestown:

On the 1st day of winter, December 22, 2013, over 250 riders took off under blue & sunny skies on the rebuilt roads of Lefthand and James Canyons.   Thank you for participating in this amazing event.  Everyone had  a great time and it seemed to go off with out a hitch.We haven’t completed the final tally yet, but we believe over $20,000 was raised that day between your donations, gear sales, and contributions by the Greenbriar Inn.

A big thanks goes out to both John Tarkington, local cycling coach, and Karli Gronholm, owner of Full Cycle Bike shops for all of their help in organizing volunteers, merchandise, and coordinating with CDOT, Boulder County, Bldr Cty Sheriffs, and Lefthand Fire District.

Thanks also to:

  • PreRace for donation of their on-line registration system
  • Rocky Mounts for use of their registration van
  • Sportif Images for donation of their time and photography
  • The many volunteers from Venus de Miles and Boulder Cycling Club
  • Volunteer residents of Jamestown who hosted us at the Jamestown Mercantile and welcomed the cyclists with open arms.
  • AMR Ambulance services who donated their time and vehicles, but luckily were not needed all day to the best of our knowledge.

Many, many hours went into making this happen, but the best thing is that you enjoyed yourself, and were able to make a real difference in the lives of the most impacted victims of the flood in Jamestown and Lefthand canyon.
