Scores of cyclists remember Kelly Boe
MIDDLEBURY — More than 100 riders, most of whom knew Kelly Boe, took part in the Kelly Boe Memorial Bike Ride on May 9. The cyclists started at Middlebury Union High School and proceeded on a slow ride through Middlebury and Weybridge in honor of those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roads; Kelly Boe was killed while out bike riding in 2015. Participants included the MUHS girls’ lacrosse team, MUHS track athletes, senior students who are friends of Boe’s daughter Andi, some teachers and MUHS staff. Boe’s widow, Kathy, rode with she and Kelly’s daughters, Sara and Andi.
Local school Superintendent Peter Burrows, a committed biker himself, rode up front, leading the ride behind Sheriff Keeler, who escorted the ride with light flashing on his police car. Middlebury police officers provided traffic control and Middlebury Town Manager Kathleen Ramsey was on hand, riding in her professional clothes.
In addition to raising awareness that we all share the road and share responsibility for keeping it safe, the ride offered a chance for people to contribute to the Kelly Boe Scholarship Fund.
