Helix and the Firecracker 100

It’s time we let you in on one of our secrets: Helix has a cycling team. While this group is notorious in our office for flaunting their free-style rides, they have been known to dabble in events of a more official (and challenging) nature.

The Team

On Saturday, July 3, Helix’s very own cycling team joined cycling fanatics from all over at the Firecracker 100 in Ottawa, Kansas. The team participated in the annual event whose proceeds went towards the Kansas Jaycees Cerebral Palsy Ranch.

You may wonder why it looks as if team Helix is alone on the road; when the crew was confronted with this minor detail during their presentation at our weekly meeting they assured us it had something to do with their impressive speed and ability to keep ahead of the pack. And while the Helix crew appears to be having fun strolling through the beautiful fields of Kansas, rest assured, their collective dedication and fortitude was put to the test.

If you see the team on their regular weekly rides or at cycling events around the Midwest, sporting the new Helix cycling uniform, be sure to say hello!
