Tour de Cure

Alright, so I know that it has been awhile, but I have shit going on in my life as well as many of you. I've said it before, but sometimes it needs repeating.


Onto what I want to talk about.


On May 18th I will be riding in the Tour de Cure. Every cyclist has their own reason for riding that drives them to the finish line, and next month this ride will be mine. I really wanted to ride in the MS 150, but I wasn't able to scrape enough funds together in time before registration ended. I did get some money together for the Tour de Cure. I have my own page that you can click on to donate money for the cause.

I don't personally know anyone who has Diabetes, but this is for a good cause. I figure I ride my bike enough and I enjoy so much that I can do this to help other people.

The route I have chosen to do is the 58 mile ride. It starts in San Marcos and ends in Austin. Now I know that it isn't 58 miles there, but the ride is going to be zig zagging its way up to Austin.

Now most of you know that I ride a fixed gear, and I like to ride with the really stupid gear ratio's. This ride is going to be no different. I will be riding "Black Betty" which is 48x14. I am pretty damn sure that the route that I am taking is going to be filled with hills. I figure that I can do it because 1. I want to. and 2. it is for a good cause. and 3. Because I want the challenge. 4. I will be doing something good for someone else somewhere else.

With all the being said, please help out. Anything will help 1 dollar 2 dollars 10...it doesn't matter. Remember, this ride isn't about the money but doing something good for other people.


til next time
