Remembering Kansas Bicycling Advocate Cecile Kellenbarger

A message from Roxanne Wright of the Oz Bicycle Club of Wichita:

If you haven’t yet heard Cecile Kellenbarger passed away at home, Monday April 4, 2011. Cecile was involved in many bicycle related projects. There are too many to mention here. She will always be remembered for the Wicked Wind 100. I know John would like to see many OZ Bicycle Club members come to the service. This will be a time that we all can celebrate her life and all that she has done for the bicycling community.

    oh yeah… wouldn’t work too well with the cars in the pic, but I usually do that to people that park just over the line the other way from the pic.
