Last year, I participated in the American Diabetes Association Tour de Cure as a volunteer. The one thing that I regretted was not actually riding. When it was all said and done, I wanted one of those Red Rider jerseys. I love riding my bike, and even though I haven’t trained much I’m not really worried about making it 32 miles on Saturday. Even without riding for months, a 12 mile ride is still pretty easy for me. Strong legs and strong lungs, I suppose.
My dad will be riding with me. It is an honor to be able to participate in this event with him. I have always respected him and enjoyed following in his footsteps. He began seriously riding about the time we moved to Springfield and has participated in the MS 150 for several years. He rode in the Tour last year and I am very proud to be riding with him this year.
