Tour de Cure

Hi all

This will be my 4th year riding and I am hoping to raise $3000.00 for the American Diabetes Assoc. But I can only do this with your support.

On June 3rd 2012 in Saratoga Springs I will be riding my bicycle 100 miles rain or shine.

Please help with this very worthy cause

PM me for my address.

thanks
john casey

Hey canoejr,
Sounds like you're a serious cyclist...what's your average season mileage?
Do you do club rides? Commute?
I just started commuting for the season, but it's only 2 miles to work, but it's a good time to relax at each end of the day.
Most of my rides are during lunch, I can squeeze in 20-22 miles on a flat ride. I have a hilly route with almost 3,000 feet of climbing, I like the hills!!
Some years I manage to get nearly 3,000 miles in, some years barely 1,400.
