Kimmy Cross 2016
December 11, 2016 at 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Kimmy Cross 2016 is our second annual dedication to Kim Matheson, a dear friend and founding member of The BeerMongers Cycle Club. Come celebrate life, cycling, and the people we hold dearest on Sunday December 11th at noon, in the parking lot of The BeerMongers Bottle Shop.
Bring two teammates, one smart phone and bucket full of gumption! If you come up short, we’ll find you a buddy or two.
**This will be the only Alley Cross race this year**
Kim was first diagnosed with Melanoma in June of 2014 and after some aggressive treatment she was cleared of cancer. In about a year’s time, her cancer came back and spread quickly throughout her body, taking her life on December 1st, 2015. She passed away with loved her ones at her side, and so many more of us keeping her in our hearts and our thoughts. She was a truly kind and inspiring individual. May we live our own lives in her honor: to the fullest and with sunscreen on.
Per Kim’s wishes, we are donating all proceeds to The Melanoma International Foundation. There is a $10 suggested donation. Please bring cash, credit, checks, sacks of pennies or whatever you have lying around! Your race fee is a donation to a very important cause. As always, we urge everybody to get an annual skin scan, wear sunscreen, and take care of your bodies.
Our main raffle prize is a Soma Double Cross 56cm frame (w/o fork) from Cyclone!
We have prizes and support from some really fabulous sponsors including:
Cyclone Bicycle Supply

Even if you are not interested in racing everyone can still take part in the pre and post-race activities.
