BBB continues support for Gary Holdiness Cycling Fund!
We are continuing our financial support of the Gary Holdiness Cycling Fund in 2016. The fund was established in 2012 in memory of Dr. Gary Holdiness, our friend and fellow cyclist from Kosciusko, Mississippi, who was tragically struck and killed by a motorist while cycling on the Natchez Trace Parkway. The fund’s mission is to promote a safer cycling experience on the Trace, one of the world’s premier bike routes. All of the profits from sale of the2016 BBB CYCLING JERSEY will be donated to Dr. Gary's fund. Last year's jersey profits of $4,497 were given to the fund thanks to your purchases. You can go to the REGISTER link at left to the 2016 jersey for $79.95, plus tax, and sign up for the ride, too.
