I'll be part of a group riding from Thunder Bay Ontario, down thru Duluth, Bayfield Wisconsin, Hayword WI and winding up in the Twin Cities. 500 miles in 7 days with the long day of 105 miles and just 25 on the last day. It's the annual "Tour Des Trees" which is a fund raising event for "The Tree Fund", the research branch of the International Society of Aborculture. All I need to do is secure $3500 in sponsorship money and get myself in great shape. It will be an incredable ride with over half the mileage right on the shores of Lake Superior. It will be in the last week of July but it's usually pretty nice and cool up there. Now, further south down towards the Twin Cities it could be very hot. Anyway, it's giving me a great goal to prepare for in my winter conditioning.
