Shameless fundraising ride for the ADA

 This will be a casual ride down the parkway to the lakes, up and around and back on the Greenway. 18 miles on a beautiful spring day. 

  The Shameless part is afterwards and is COMPLETELY OPTIONAL! Come ride with us even if you don't wish to stay. 

  My goal this year is to ride 3 Tour De Cures for diabetes. (My son is type 1). 50mi in Rochester, 62 in town, and 100 in Fargo. But I'm unemployed right now so I need to do the fundraising rather than just write the checks.  So after the ride, I'll bring a grill and grill up cheeseburgers. You get a Cheeseburger, chips, a Carona, and water for a $10 check to the American Diabetes Association. Bring a camp chair with you, we can throw it in the back of my truck while we ride.

 Again, the after part is COMPLETELY OPTIONAL! You can park for free along Minnehaha up by DQ

    FYI -packet pickup for Get In Gear is at Minnehaha Park on Fri. There is also a pasta feed. The pickup is from 12-8 so there won't be huge crowds at any given time, but do give yourself a little extra time for parking

    Hey all,
    They are all saying rain tomorrow, with one even saying the S word. So I'm going to move this event to next Friday in hopes of better weather. My kids will be with me, so I won't be leading a long ride, but I'll see if I can get a friend to. We'll gather at 6 and eat burgers, and then hike the falls and ride. Come out for a spring evening at the falls.

    Weather doesn't look promising. Check your email in the morning before heading out. If need be I'll move the ride to next Friday, but will be an easier ride as I will have my kids with me

    The link for the Rochester ride that is coming up first is here. If it gets to $150, ask me for the Fargo link. Thank you :) If anyone wants to ride one of these with me let me know

    Laura and I will try to make it, but we are last-minute planners and very fair-weather riders!
