Last year, 13,000 cyclists raised more than $13 million to help fight diabetes in Tour de Cure events around the country.
Nicole and I will be doing the 60 mile ride, which used to include a trip up our least favorite training hill, Newport Coast (hence our team name: “Newport Coasters”), but now goes in the opposite direction through the beautiful Palos Verdes Estates. Shorter options of 33, 20, 10, and 5 miles are also available.
Every year I try to put together a tandem team. Last year, I told the organizers I would have better luck if they only charged one entry fee per bike. Evidently they listened to me:
Register before Monday (2/2/2009) at 10:00 PM using the promotional code: SUPERBOWL09 and the registration fee (usually $15 to $25 dollars; double that for a tandem) is waived.
(You do have to agree to raise $150 when you sign up, but the only penalty for not raising any money is: you don’t get a T-Shirt...at least that’s how it’s always been in the past).
There is no reason not to sign up! Start your own team, or if you'd like to ride with us here's a link to our team page: http://main.diabetes.org/site/TR?tea...d=5633&pg=team
Back to work,
