Re: [NUTS] Interest in Tour de Cure charity bike ride in Roseville? (May 1st)
- Bryan,Sounds like a fun event. I have strung together some paths in that area and find them interesting. We are doing another similar event in Napa, Cycle for Sight, and I will see if my wife wants to do this one also.MartyMr. boodlebuggy

Date: Friday, April 2, 2010, 9:25 PMNot GC-related (unless an event is organized after the ride :-), but was
wondering if there'd be much interest in participating in the Tour de Cure
bicycle ride in Roseville on Saturday May 1st. It starts at the HP site
first thing in the AM, and there are a number of different lengths
(50k/31mi; 100k/62mi; and 161k/100mi).
Riders are responsible for signing up ($25) and raising $150 or more in
donations. There are rest stops with food/water, snacks, and support
vehicles to help out if there are any needs that pop up during the ride. It
looks like there's a nice lunch/party afterward as well!
Take a look here for more info.

If there's sufficient interest, I'll see about setting up a GC "themed" team
just so we have a fun moniker...
It looks like a good opportunity to challenge yourself for a good cause!
And after riding this, you'll be in great shape for a future cache run along
the river on the bike trail!!! (obligatory caching content) ;-)

- Forgive the non-caching related message on the list, but couldn't resist
providing an update from the Nutty River City Riders... The TdC is coming
up in about 2 weeks and our team is #9 on the fundraising honor roll at the
event, with almost $2200 raised! Not bad for a group of five cachers (and
their generous friends)!
There's still time for you to sign up for the ride--as I mentioned before
there are a lot of different distance (and elevation) options.
And just as a caching-related reminder--after this ride hammering out some
caches on the bike trail will be a piece of cake! :-)
