Bike ride to aid Boe scholarship fund
MIDDLEBURY — The Addison Central Supervisory Union is organizing a “Kelly Boe Memorial Bike Ride” on Monday, May 4, at 4 p.m., to provide seed money for a scholarship fund in honor of Boe, a Middlebury resident who was killed after being struck by a car while cycling in Weybridge on April 14.
The ride is being spearheaded by ACSU Superintendent Peter Burrows, an avid cyclist.
“This is an open invitation ride, so no need to sign up,” Burrows wrote in an April 17 email to the ACSU community. “It is a community-wide invitation, so please share this with others you think might be interested in riding. I will be working on sending word out through other venues, as well.”
The Kelly Boe Memorial Ride will include a police escort, leaving MUHS at 4 p.m. Participants will ride out to Weybridge, taking a right on Hamilton Road, and then another right onto Morgan Horse Farm Road back into Middlebury. The riders will pause at the junction of Hamilton and Sheep Farm Roads for a moment of silence. It was on Hamilton Road that Kelly Boe, 55, was struck by a vehicle being driven by 27-year-old Nathan Dearing.
Authorities allege that Dearing was intoxicated when he allegedly drove the red 1997 Subaru Impreza across the center line of Hamilton Road and struck and killed Boe, who was cycling with his wife, Kathy. Dearing pleaded innocent on April 15 in Addison Superior Court, criminal division, to a felony count of driving under the influence with death resulting, and a misdemeanor count of driving with a suspended license for the fifth time. He faces up to 17 years in prison on the criminal charges and additional time on a separate, violation of parole offense.
Donations to the Kelly Boe Memorial Scholarship Fund will be collected on the day of the ride, or can be submitted directly to the MUHS office, made out to the “Kelly Boe Memorial Scholarship Fund.”
