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

Indeed it did - I mounted my fenders on the road bike to keep the spray down. Finished up just before the last big thunder storm rolled in.
