Tour De La Farnce, Anderson, SC Sat. Sept. 5

Sorry this is so late but it has just been pulled together and of course, it is for a great cause.

There will be an autographed picture of Lance on his bike that was sent to us by his association autioned at the end of the ride.
Next year a sanctioned race in the works that will take place along with the ride.
Details for this year are in the link.
Hoping for a couple hundred riders minimum.

It was a nice ride. a little strange that it was not a standard loop. They used us like "critical mass" to claim the streets. My "rabbit" said she rode 18 mph. A good pace for me! They staged the ride to promote Complete Streets.

Thanks for riding and for commenting. It was a beautiful morning for a ride and there were over 100 participants. It used a rolling road block like bike races and actually plans are already in the making to have a sanctioned race along with the ride next year. The purpose was to bring awarness to "Complete Streets" and raise funds ($6000) for the Anderson Cancer Association.
