A slew of American cycling’s top names past and present — Greg LeMond, Alison Dunlap and Bob Roll to name a few — will be on hand to sign autographs and share career experiences at the fourth annual Wheat Ridge Cyclery Pro Event.
Slated for January 12 from noon to 6 p.m. in Wheat Ridge, Colorado (just outside Denver), the event will benefit the Front Rangers Cycling Club and the Nicole Reinhart Foundation. Admission is $10 for adults. Children under 16 get in free. A complete list of attendees can be found here. Pro Event 2002 tickets can be purchased locally at Wheat Ridge Cyclery or the Handle Bar and Grill, or on-line.
Many of the cycling industry’s top manufacturers will also be present, to unveil their newest products, samples, and concepts. Among those scheduled to attend are Trek, Gary Fisher, Specialized, Serotta, Colnago, Intense, Titus, Yeti, Mavic, Shimano, Continental, Look, Sidi, Pearl Izumi, Answer Manitou and RockShox.
The Front Rangers Cycling Club is a non-profit organization that gives at-risk youth the opportunity to cycle, which offsets the influences of gangs, drugs, and other detrimental social conditions facing young people. The Nicole Reinhart Foundation increases opportunities for young cyclists to succeed by promoting endeavors that build safety awareness, self-esteem, character, sportsmanship, faith, and physical fitness.
Due to the growing size of this event, functions will be held at the shop and at the neighboring Wheat Ridge Middle School. For more information contact event coordinator Ron Feeback at email@example.com or 303/424-3221.
