Kelly & Associates Insurance Group announced today that it will once again, for the second consecutive year, serve as the presenting sponsor of Baltimore’s annual BikeJam Cycling Festival in Patterson Park taking place Saturday, May 28. The day’s major event, "The Kelly Cup," has been placed on this year’s National Racing Calendar (NRC).
Promoted by Baltimore based Lateral Stress Velo Racing Team and Bicycle Club and Corrigan Sports Enterprises, BikeJam is the Mid-Atlantic region’s largest cycling festival that has earned national recognition from the U.S. Cycling Federation. Last year’s event attracted more than 750 participants and 5,000 spectators who, along with the races, were entertained by live music, professional biker demos and kids’ safety cycling workshops.
The BikeJam 2005 Festival will feature a variety of activities for cyclists and non-cyclists. In addition to The Kelly Cup, there will be a non-competitive Community Recreation Ride that tours the city of Baltimore, a bike stunt demonstration, a health and fitness expo, a kid’s pavilion for bike decorating and live music. All activities, with the exception of the recreation ride, will be in Patterson Park. For more information, visit www.bikejam.org
