Did you know that Keen Wealth Advisors sponsors the Big D Cycling team? As a result of our close partnership with Big D Cycling and our active desire to be involved with community events, we are hosting the inaugural Keen Wealth Classic cyclocross race on November 13th. We hope this event will become a midwest staple for years to come and are honored to be able to help get it started.
Keen Wealth Advisors has the wonderful opportunity to sponsor the first annual Keen Wealth Classic, a cycling event with races for all ages. Cyclists will compete for the chance to win medals and cash prizes, along with bragging rights they can boast all year! As some of you may know, I have been a supporter of the cycling community for a long time, as well as the title sponsor for the Big D Cycling team.
We are all excited to host the inaugural event and have committed resources to help secure the venue, permits, and coordinate the race. I’ve even been joining the team on my road bike on their training rides preparing for the event. The venue, Wyandotte County Lake Park at the Beach Shelter, offers beautiful views of the lake and start/finish line from the spectator area. Competitive cycling may be outside your comfort zone, but spending a day outdoors surrounded by friends enjoying good food is something we all can enjoy.
Kids Ride Free
The views aren’t the only treat on race day. Little cyclists can get in on the fun and compete for a chance to win a medal in the kids event. Junior riders race free, thanks to Keen Wealth Advisors and the Kansas Cycling Association. The team at Keen Wealth Advisors wants to make it as easy as possible for the parents in our community to find engaging, fun activities to get their kids outside and active. By taking care of their race fees, we hope to give all kids the opportunity to try something new and maybe develop a love for cycling!
If cycling is your daily ritual or just something you like to do for exercise on the weekends, come out and enjoy the competition. Free race entry is available to anyone who wants to help with set up on the 12th and take down after the event on the 13th. Even if cycling isn’t your thing, the race is a great excuse to get outside and socialize. The after race party is not to be missed and will feature live music from Colby & Mole, grilled bratwursts, and ice cold beverages! Perfect to quench your post-race thirst.
Community is Key
Cycling is the main event of the weekend, but at Keen Wealth Advisors we are always excited to be a part of vibrant community activities. We are happy to talk about planning for the future and ways our team can get involved with local groups and activities. We will be cheering for all riders, but especially the Big D Cycling Masters Mens Team who will be defending their team title and we know they are racing to win. I and my team at Keen Wealth Advisors are proud to sponsor this event and hope to make it a staple in the community and midwest for years to come.
