Capitol Classic: Tim Roberts Memorial Ride

Capitol Classic 2011The 2011 Capitol Classic takes place on May 22nd in Topeka, Kansas, and the Kaw Valley Bicycle Club has designated this year’s edition of the ride as a memorial to Tim Roberts, a Topeka cyclist who was killed by a driver who struck his bicycle from behind on September 12th, 2010.

The Shawnee County District Attorney’s office is apparently still investigating whether they’ll file any criminal charges against the driver. They did not respond to a request for a status update on the case.
