First things first: We are still accepting donations through the end of June. The link is: http://main.diabetes.org/goto/teamorel
We may have a date conflict next year, so this ride may be our last for a while. So I am posting some pictures of our rides over these past 9 years...
last year's blog piece. I bought a new bike rack this year.
In 2005, the ride was a good way for Aaron -- then age 8 and just a few months in to cycling on two wheels -- and I to do an organized ride. I didn't think too hard about the cause, even though Lori and I each had grandparents who suffered from diabetes. That first year, I raised a little more than $1600, and another $800 for Aaron. When I picked up a brochure for the 2006 ride, much to my surprise I was listed as the 4th highest fundraiser for 2005! I was hooked.
