About Jimmy Kline
Many would say he was a good man. Many would say he loved to ride. Many would say nothing: and become speechless because there are not words to describe such a wonderful person.
Join Our Ride.
The 10th Annual Prime Time Jimmy Kline Ride For Cancer will be held on August 22nd and 23rd 2014 at the newly renovated Riverside Park on Mansion Street in Downtown Mauston. In the past 10 years, over $30,000 has donated to the American Cancer Society for research only Friends and Family Cancer Foundation for cancer assistance to local residents. The total consists of Donations for the Cancer Recognition Plaque, Auction, Raffle, and Ride Registration as well as the PTJK 5K Run and 5K Memorial Walk at the Mauston Pumpkin Bash. Although the run was canceled this year, we wanted to shift our efforts to making the 10th years worth it. This money is crutial in fighting the battle of cancer.
~~Ride History and Beginning - A Note from Founder Dennis Nielsen. I began to organize the Prime Time Jimmy Kline Ride for Cancer in the early summer of 2005 after Jimmy lost his battle to cancer on February 4, 2005. Jimmy was a fellow-rider and long-time friend of mine. Our ride is recognized into the upper mid-west. All intersections will be blocked off by the local police municipalities. Motorcycles will line up behind the road captain and road guards, other vehicles will follow behind the bikes. The ride begins in Juneau County in Mauston, WI at Riverside Park and travels through hills and valleys, across the Mississippi River before arriving at Mount Hosmer in Lansing, IA. Mount Hosmer is a Veterans Park ; Jimmy shared the park's beauty with many people over his many years. He loved the park and its view overlooking the Mississippi River National Wildlife Refuge. We hope you will consider being a part of the Prime Time Jimmy Kline Ride for Cancer and experience what we felt during the inaugural ride in August, 2005 and every year since. Proceeds of the 2012 ride will be dispersed as follows: 75% will be given to the American Cancer Society for research and the remaining 25% will go to the Friends and Family Cancer Foundation for Patient Assistance in Adams, Juneau and Sauk counties. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact us. It is truly an honor for us to continue organizing this ride, we know "It's all about the people." We look forward to meeting each and every one of you on The Ride. Like Jimmy always said, "Let's kick the tires and light the fires." See you at the Ride! Dennis Nielsen Founder and President
