The crew at Bike Masters is pleased to announce that we will once again be supporting the Tour de Cure sponsored by the American Diabetes Association. This is a great event! I think it is the best ride of its type in the area, and I personally encourage you to participate. The rider support, the organization, and the after-party are unparalleled.
The ride is Sunday, May 31, 2009. More details will be provided in the coming months.
Last year, the Bike Masters team of Bud, Steve, Doug, and Scott won the trophy for most funds raised per capita. Doug, a diabetic, will be the captain for the 2009 team.
You can participate in several ways:
Join the team, raise money for diabetes research, invite your friends, and ride in the event. There are tours of various lengths, so you can be comfortable with the course. Doug will make sure that he or an experienced Bike Masters club rider will accompany you and your group if you desire. To join up, Google “Tour de Cure” and navigate to the Nebraska event or click here. Select "join a team" and type in Bike Masters team and follow the prompts to complete your registration.
For those of you who can’t ride in the Tour, you can still support the Team. Click here and select “sponsor a rider.”
This will enable you to select anyone on the Bike Masters Team and make a Tax deductible donation. Donations in any amount are greatly appreciated and will help our team bring home the trophy again!!
You can ask anyone who has participated about the event. I like to support diabetes research because I have friends who are affected by diabetes and I have lost family members to diabetes. Also, it’s the week before BRAN, so it’s a great tune-up ride.
If you have any questions, please ask me or Doug.
We look forward to seeing you there.
