Family and friends of Cambridge cyclist Leigh Hobson are holding a fundraising barbecue Sunday afternoon at 3 Dayton St., Cambridge. Hobson is trying to raise money to bring her husband, Jeff Evans, and her coach, Frank Fogolin, along with her to Beijing for the Olympics next month.
If fundraising goes well, Fogolin will join Hobson for a week in Beijing; her husband is hoping to come for two weeks.
There's a big race in Germany on July 18.
Then she'll be in Kyoto, Japan, for a week of training, before arriving in Beijing on Aug. 6.
