Front Range Cycling Community Organizes Fundraiser For Favorite Cycling Destination Town

BOULDER, Colo., Oct. 8, 2013 – Cyclists 4 Jamestown (, an organization of Front Range cyclists, is teaming up with Rebuild Jamestown, a fund to restore critical infrastructure for the town, in an effort to raise money for Jamestown, Colo., in the aftermath of the recent severe flooding with an all-day event Oct. 19 at the old Beech Aircraft office park 2 miles north of town on the left, ¼ mile south of Neva Road.

For years, Jamestown has been a beloved cycling destination in the area, but due to the recent floods the small town has sustained severe damage, estimated at over $35 million.  Roads have been washed out, there is no clean water, and 20 percent of the homes in town were destroyed, with the rest of the residents displaced.  One person, the former owner of the famous Merc café, Joey Howlett was killed.

Cycling enthusiasts of all types, from novices to pros, are encouraged to attend the event in support of Jamestown reconstruction efforts.  There will be a variety of festivities including a silent and live auction, raffle food, beer, live music, fun activities, and “meet-and-greets” with leaders of the local cycling community, including pro road and mountain bike racers from past and present.  Jamestown mayor Tara Shoedinger and other residents of the community will also be on hand to tell their stories firsthand.
