    Talking Redmond Wa. Tour de Cure. I did it!!

    After years off my bike due to injuries, I finally got back on and boy does it feel good! I took a leap of faith and signed up for the Redmond Tour de Cure. I thought I had better start slow so I signed up for the flat 15 however, I "accidentally" took a left and did the 20 and I made it Yeehaw!! I'm so tickled I cant stand myself
    It was a bit cold and windy, but the ride was really nice and well thought out. And the folks that I got to ride with were awesome, very helpful.
    I cnn't wait to find another ride real soon.
    Hope you all have a great tour, where ever you are riding.

    Glad you had a good time with it! My company team did the 44 miler, and we had a blast. If you're looking for another ride, the Flying Wheels Century is coming up on June 16th. Start/finish at Marymoor, over by the velodrome. There's 25, 50, 75 and 100 mile rides followed by an after party and races on the track.

    Hey Cliff,
    The flying wheels century sounds pretty good, Maybe I can do the 25. Just gotta save up some gas money! Its a long way from the east side! Took 3 hours to get there last Saturday, worth every minute tho!
