Team Vino Queso
In early 2010, my sister Chris asked if I would like to go to Rotterdam, Netherlands for the Grand Depart of the Tour de France and then follow the first stages in Netherlands and Belgium. I said, "Sure, but can we see some windmills too?" By the time we were driving to Northern France to see that cobble stage along Paris-Roubaix route, I was hooked. Since then, we've been to 2013 Tour de France, US Pro Cycling Challenge, GP Cycliste in Quebec and Montreal. And, most relevant, we participated together in the 2016 King Challenge! Before our 2013 Tour de France junket, we decided a team name was needed: Team Vino Queso.
Chris has been a long time cycling fan. She opened the doors for me to experience the excitement, the people, culture, history, geography, and great opportunities that cycling affords everyone. For that I am grateful...
Team Vino Queso looks forward to continuing our support of the King Challenge and the Krempels Center!
King Challenge 2018
The King Challenge is a fundraising event benefitting Krempels Center, a Portsmouth, NH based nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of people living with acquired brain injury resulting from trauma, tumor or stroke.
What the ride is - The King Challenge is a fundraising event: participation comes with a commitment to raise minimum amounts to help support Krempels Center. Please see the Fundraising Section of our website for more details.
What the ride is not – This ride is not a race, it is designed to be an enjoyable day of cycling and camaraderie.
Three routes, of varying lengths, have been designed to accommodate a wide range of cycling abilities. Fundraising minimums have been set at easily-attainable levels and the focus is on family fun.
Krempels Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of people living with brain injury. In partnership with universities and community volunteers, we offer programs that engage our members in meaningful and productive experiences and provide ongoing support and resources to survivors and their families.
