LET’S DO THIS.
In just 1 week, Iâ€™m riding 40 miles on a bike named Veda to help raise funds for the American Diabetes Associationâ€™s â€˜Tour de Cureâ€™ cycling event.
Iâ€™m ready; last week I rode a total of 53 miles on Saturday and Sunday (including 30 miles for Chicagoâ€™s Bike the Drive).
Iâ€™ll be able to complete the whole shebang, assuming I donâ€™t crash too many times trying to learn to ride with my new clipless pedals that I bought last week from Larry Gross at Village Cycle. So far I’ve only fallen once. WOOHOO, go me.
Iâ€™m just a little short of making my goal of $2000.00, but Iâ€™m pretty confident; fundraising closes by about July 7 and I think Iâ€™ll be just over the top by the 14JUN ride date. Right now Iâ€™ve raised $1814.00. If youâ€™re planning on sending a check, let me know by email that I should expect it; I havenâ€™t received any checks by mail so far.
THANK YOU to the following wonderful friends and family members whoâ€™ve donated so far:
