Optional Donation to Juarez/Jolley Families
Chilly Hilly '95 is dedicated to David Juarez and Skip Jolley. Both
cyclists were struck by a car during a Cascade Bicycle Club training ride on
October 13th, 1994, allegedly by a hit-and-run drunk driver. David died as a
result of his injuries and is survived by his wife Maria and three children.
Skip Jolley was hospitalized for over five weeks and returned home to his family
just before Thanksgiving. He is still recuperating from his injuries.
We encourage you to make a donation which will be split equally between the
two families. Simply note your donation on the registration form and include
the amount in your check. If you are not registering for the ride but wish to

For Your Safety
There will be several vehicles with amateur radio communications and medics
aboard circling the route opposite to the flow of bicycle traffic. They are
identified with Cascade Bicycle Club signs, and are there to assist bicyclists
with difficulties. They are in radio contact with Police and Fire Departments
and the Event Coordinators.
The day-of-ride emergency number is 522-BIKE. It will be answered
live in our communications center at the Soup'r Cider Stop.
Please check that your bicycle is in safe working condition. If any
maintenance is required please be sure to have it done before the ride.
Bicycle mechanics will be stationed at five points around the course, and there
will be repair crews on tandems riding the route. If you are unable to make it
to a repair site under your own power, contact a route marshal and a
safety vehicle may be able to help you out.
