the American Diabetes Association holds rides all over the country to raise funds for research.

my close friend just got it. he is 25. his blood sugar was in the 600's. so i helped buy him a mtb bike to get some exercise.

well he found this ride and asked me to do it with him. he is a rook and only has a mountain bike but he wants to do this ride anyways even if its on the road. so we will be on mtb's and he signed up for the 50 miler.

we don't have anyone else on our team and he doesnt know anyone who cycles as he is a total newbie, so all is welcome to join us and i figure it will be a great ride through wine country at least.

heres info about the ride

if you want to join the team or just want to donate 5 dollars to the cause (i have to raise a few hundred bucks to be "in" the ride), this link below will have links for online donating or joining the team. note, if you join the team, you have to raise a few hundred bucks too :thumbsup:

I wish the JDRF in Canada would do a ride near me. My son is Type 1 and we'd both, go even if we had to ride road bikes. I've talked to them a couple of times about it but they just say there's not enough interest.

Cancer does a couple of rides every year in this area. We go on those but we have a vested interest in Diabetes. It would be nice to give our cause a boost by riding.
