Big D Cycling

Big D Cycling is a Category 4 & 5 bicycle racing team based in Shawnee, Kansas. Our mission is to promote safe cycling within our community while representing their team and sponsors in local, state and national road and cyclecross events.

Big D Cycling was started by a group of competitive cyclists in the memory of a fellow rider and good friend, Dalton Eli Hawkins who tragically lost his life on April 24, 2009. Big D Cycling rides in honor of the 18 year-old, straight A student, loving son and brother, and devoted cyclist - "Big D", as they called him. Tim Hawkins, Dalton's uncle, used Dalton's love of cycling as a metaphor for his loved ones' attempts to remember Dalton. "The wonderful memories on the ride through Big D's life," he said. "These are the memories that will ride with us forever."
