Wow! What an amazing show of support. For the first time Half Acre Cycling teamed up with Half Acre Beer Company to host a fundraiser to support the West Town Bikes Cyclocross program.
For those that don't know, the WTB CX program sponsors and provides mentorship and coaching to juniors and young adults that would otherwise not have the opportunity to participate in cyclocross events. Racing requires fitness and teaches commitment and perseverance. The skills, knowledge and friendships gained help form a socially intelligent and responsible, physically fit person.
We at HAC were very excited to be a part of this as supporting the beginner rider and bringing the sport to more folks is important to us. Without these efforts some of us wouldn't be racing today.
An event like this couldn't have happened without the support of our sponsors and friends. Major hats off to Half Acre Beer Co. for allowing us to takeover their taproom, providing staff, tours, and proceeds of the beer sales. We are so honored to represent them on the bike.
The raffle prizes were simply above and beyond. We created about a dozen 'super lots' so each one was well worth a few tickets. Big thanks to:
If you weren't able to attend you can still support the WTB CX program by visiting the West Town Bikes website. There you will also learn more about the other programs they run and ways you can get involved.
