Seattle Cyclocross and New Belgium Brewing raise funds for the Major Taylor Project
Dust off your cow bell, throw on some old boots, and bring your friends and family down to Enumclaw to watch some muddy and exciting cyclocross racing this weekend. Or better yet, take that old mountain bike out of the garage and come out to race yourself! Either way, be sure to stop by the beer garden while you’re there as Seattle Cyclocross and New Belgium Brewing of Fort Collins, CO are teaming up to support the Major Taylor Project. Produced by the Cascade Bicycle Club Education Foundation (CBCEF), the Major Taylor Project is a year-round, youth development cycling program focused on introducing youth from diverse communities to the recreation of cycling and creating an inclusive culture of bicycling that will continue to future generations. While New Belgium is handing out free beer to racers, friends and family members (21+), donations will be gathered to support CBCEF and MTP. 100% of the tips and donations will go to these groups. Can’t make it out to Enumclaw this weekend? Come to the year-end race in Monroe on Sunday, Nov. 25, where there will be another opportunity to fill the tip jar as you knock back a cold one (or three).
Additionally, Seattle Cyclocross is having a drawing for a chance to win a rare, retro Fat Tire cruiser bike. The proceeds of these ticket sales will also go to the Major Taylor Project. You can purchase a drawing ticket (or a dozen) at one of the three remaining races, and the bike will be on display for you to ogle and drool over at Gregg’s Cycles at Greenlake as well as at the remaining races. The drawing will be held on the evening of Nov. 26 during Seattle Cyclocross’ awards party at Elysian Fields. Seattle Cyclocross has set a goal to raise $2500 to benefit CBCEF and the Major Taylor Project, so let’s help them out!
