Tour de Cure A Bust

Rode the Tour de Cure this weekend. IT RAINED!!! ARGH!!! We signed up for the 100k (which ended up being about 65 miles) but because of the nasty weather (thunder and lightening) we cut it short and ended up with about 48 miles at an average speed of about 16.

We may try to go back this weekend and ride the 65. If it doesn't rain I'll have pics too.

I HATE RAIN!!!

SO you have to return donations that you didn't earn?

Oh I earned them by just asking. I hate asking people for money, even when it's for such a good cause.

Our Tour rained out too. i signed up for the 150 miles (2 days). Day one went good, good climb up Monteagle Mountain. The rain forced them to cancel day two. They sagged the 70 or so riders who made it to the top of the mountain back.
