Team Jelly Belly to host cycling clinic

Submitted by Tour of Utah,

One of the 16 teams participating in the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah, Jelly Belly presented by Maxxis (USA) will take part in a bicycle workshop for 10 youths on Thursday, July 30.

The team members will attend a graduation ceremony at the Bicycle Collective in Salt Lake City. The students will be completing the "Earn a Bike" program, which is a free, six-week introductory bike mechanics course offered to kids ages 8-18. At this event, the children will each receive a free bike for completion of the course and then go on a mini-bike ride in the Bicycle Collective parking lot with the members of Jelly Belly.

"The Tour of Utah is a community-based event as the race route brings professional cycling to different parts of the state," said Jenn Andrs, executive director. "We appreciate the efforts of the Jelly Belly Cycling Team to give back to our local community by participating in a youth event with the non-profit Bicycle Collective. It will be an inspiring event."

The Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah begins Monday, Aug. 3, in Logan and concludes Sunday, Aug. 9, in Park City. The seven-day professional men’s cycling stage race is free to the public.
