The ADA Tour de Cure

In years past our family has participated in the Tour de Cure. This is a fund raising event/ride for the American Diabetes Association. It is a fantastically supported ride that raises thousands of dollars for the Research and Cure of Diabetes.

We have family and friends with Diabetes and feel like this is one small way that we can help while at the same time getting out on our bikes with the family.

The Seattle Tour de Cure was last Saturday May 16 and because of prior commitments we were unable to participate. But the route was ready and we got to ride part of it last Friday.
If we are able to participate next year, you'll be the first to find out because we'll be hitting you up for some donations!
In the mean time keep your eyes peeled for bikes on the road and see what you can do about being one of them!

I have a few friends from California that are participating in this event from the San Jose area. Apparently one of the hills on their course is extremely steep. That's going to be one tired but proud group of finishers!

I'm glad you at least got to ride part of your area's course. Be sure to "hit me up" next year when you ride it!

Fingers crossed for next year!

You'll be overjoyed to know that I got an extra wide and cushy seat for my bike. Bucket is happy. ;)
