ALSO...L.L. Bean will cover the $25 registration fee for anyone who joins our team. To take advantage of this, click on the link above. Click on "join an existing team." Search for our team "L.L. Bean." While signing up you will have the opportunity to enter the promo code: "Biking Beans" this is case sensitive. You will need to set up an account on the American Diabetes Association website to join our team.

The L.L. Bean team for this event is a "Friends & Family" team, so you do not need to be an L.L. Bean employee or have any direct affiliation to L.L. Bean to join our team! All donations are made directly through the Tour de Cure's website, L.L. Bean does not profit from this event so you can feel good about joining us!! All you need is the desire to help raise money for a good cause, and participate in a fun outdoor event.

Also, FYI: L.L. Bean is a major sponsor of the Tour de Cure...we will have a rest stop along the ride..you can stop, refuel with some snacks and drinks, or use the facilities as well!

Please join Team L.L. Bean for this awesome charity event! Our goal is to raise $10,000 to help cure diabetes and we need your support!!

If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to a member of our team, but not participate in this event, you can do so through the link above as well. Thanks!!

Please email me directly if you have ANY questions about this event: [masked]

I will definitely be re-posting with new details as this event gets closer.
