More than 150 riders got rolling Sunday morning in honor of Jim Rogers.
The fifth annual Jim Rogers Memorial Ride got started in its usual fashion; at the Tour de Nevada City Bike Shop in Nevada City. Riders of all sizes and skill levels on all types of bikes then safely navigated the LeMond Loop.
More than $500 was raised for the Youth Bicyclists of Nevada County, and fun was had by all, said Carolyn Jones-Rogers.
“It was so awesome,” she said. “It just amazes me, I can’t believe it. So many people, the energy, everyone is happy, and they were all doing it for the right reasons, and I just appreciate every body.”
In 2010, Jim Rogers, a beloved bicycle enthusiast and longtime road racer, was tragically killed by a distracted driver while riding his bike on Highway 174.
