Any Clydes - Tour de Cure - North Haven, CT 6-8/08??

I'll be riding in the Diabetes association "Tour de Cure" on June 8th in North Haven, CT. I'm doing the 100K ride

Anybody else riding in it??

I've been "off the bike" for almost 20 years, just started back up a few weeks ago.

I'm 5' 10", I'm about 240 - 245lbs. I was a junior racer once upon a time, and CAT IV in the early '80's.

I'm tring to get "below 200", I figured the diabetes ride would be good, it would force me to ride and keep the commitment...

Good on ya Smitty! I'm doing TdC in Indianapolis, myself, along with a bit over a bakers dozen other Clyde/Athena Teammates. (Assuming I'm back on the bike by then after my wee crash ) Ride or volunteering, though, I'll still be there.
