I would like to sign up for the Tour de Cure, but I do
have some questions. None of the links worked in the email so I wasn’t
able to follow the threads. Will the Take-a-Hike riders be riding in a
group or individually? Do you have riders for each mileage? Is there
is an average mph that must be maintained? Are you having any training
sessions or is everyone training individually?
Subject: [hiking-667] Tour de Cure (Your help is
Take A Hike has registered a team of bicyclist to
ride in the Tour de Cure on Saturday June 23, 2012. http://www.meetup.com/LetsTake-A-Hike/events/53532772/
Their are currently 6 riders signed up and they need your help. They could use
more riders to go 16, 32 or 64 miles routes and each team rider must raise
$150.00 to participate. It is a worthy tax deductible cause and goes towards
research to cure for diabetes.
I have a family event in Colorado that week so I am
unable to ride. However I have chosen to participate with a donation to sponsor
a Take A Hike Team rider. I ask that if you are not riding in the event, that
you also particpate with a rider sponsorship. I challenge each Take A Hike
member to a $25.00 sponsorship. That's a little over 30 cents of your spare
change per day between now and June 23. Sponsorships of $5, $10, $15, or $20
would also be appreciated. Of course anyone that got a big fat tax refund can
give more. I'm sure that group is very limited though.
Meet other local hiking, biking, floating, camping, climbing, outdoor enthusiasts. All those who are dedicated to outdoor excursions near and far, with a focus on leaving no trace of litter on our lands!
Well, this group has been going for a while now and we are just getting better. I (Brandy) started this group in the hopes to find some like-minded people in the area. I also wanted to discover more of the Ozarks. I have definately found both. We try to do a weekly hike so new members can come out and meet us in a more local area before we drag you off to Arkansas or other out of the way places. Although our weekly hikes aren't much of a hike it is a good way to get out and meet people who are actually willing to get out and enjoy some fresh air. Many of us get together and do things that aren't always posted on here. Our activities are usually free, maybe just a little gas money. We have all skill levels and we never leave anyone behind. We have a lot of diversity in our group and new organizers are always welcome. If you have ideas or want to do anything more specific let me know or become an organizer and you might be suprised how many people are looking to do the same things that you are. We have a lot of laughs and we are an easy group to get to know. We are also trying to branch into other activities. Fall is right around the corner, perfect time for some outdoor adventures! Most of our activities are pretty tame, but any participation in this group is at your own risk.
