On June 1st, 2008 The American Diabetes Assocation will be having their annual fund raising bicycle ride here in South Burlington, Vermont. Last year I was the only Unicyclist and I rode 25 kilometers. This year I would like to get as many Unicyclists as possible so we created Team Lost A Wheel. I will be riding 50 km(31 miles) and would like to have more one wheeled company. We will be riding as a team this distance but, if this is too much there is a 10km(6.2 mile rte) which is an all paved bike path, a 25km(15.5miles) or for the hardcore there is a 100km(62 miles) distance. Each start is staggered so plan on finishing close to the same time.
Please visit the website
http://tour.diabetes.org/site/PageServer?pagename=TC_homepage for all the information and check out the Team Lost A Wheel page to donate or more importantly join our team.
All you Ride The Lobster competitors this is a perfect time (2 weeks before the race) to start to taper your training and have fun riding in a supported ride without being in racing mode. The pace of the ride plans on being around 10-11 mph.
I live close to the start and have plenty of floor space to accomodate about 5.
IMPORTANT: Joining the cause means a minimum of $150 must be raised and a $15 entry fee is required. A T-shirt and a post meal is included.
