USA Cycling Meet-and-Greet and CycleFest

Message from Kurt Burkhart, Executive Director of the Charlottesville Albemarle Convention & Visitors Bureau (burkhart@charlottesville.org):

Our office, the Charlottesville Albemarle Convention & Visitors Bureau, is hosting USA Cycling for 10 days as they prepare for the UCI World Cycling Championships that will begin in Richmond on September 20.  Local cycling pros Andrea Dvorak and Ben King will be part of this team.  Both events planned – The “Meet-and-Greet” at The Paramount on Sept. 14, and CycleFest on Sept. 17 will give kids (and, their parents!) the opportunity to meet today’s pro cycling stars and as well as some up-and-coming pros who will be on the pro circuit for many years to come.

I hope that you will share these flyers in your next newsletter and remind kids and their families that this is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity for our area.  1986 was the last time the UCI World Cycling Championships were held in the United States!
