TOUR DE CURE.....go Team Tally!!!!.....

My sister is riding in this National Juvenile Diabetes event.....AWESOME!!!!!

Tour De Cure

This is an email I received from her today, if anyone is looking for specifics!.....

OK - so I have heard back that some of you are interested in joining

me for the 'Tour De Cure' ( - I have registered

for the New England Classic 150 and formed "Team Tally" so if you sign

up be sure to join my team. They will give you a fundraising page

where people can contribute online - makes it much easier. And we can

all ride together.. Please forward this to anyone else that you think

may be interested in joining our team....

We will be riding for my sweet adorable niece Tallia Emily who has

type 1 diabetes as well as any friends and family members that you

would like to add to the list.

The ride that I am doing is July 10-11 and 75 miles each day (total

150). It is a supported ride (includes support and gear

transportation, mechanical assistance, medical volunteers,police

escorts, directional signs, rest stops every 10-12 miles with food and

drink and lodging at UNH) and requires a $600 min fundraising amount.

If you register now its $50 - but goes up to $80.

The ride begins in Woburn MA Saturday morning and goes to UNH the

first day where we stay overnight. The second days ride begins in

Durham NH and goes to Biddeford Maine. The ride continues from here

for the 550 miler (5 days). The participants of the 2 day ride are

driven back to Woburn.

If you register for the Classic, you can ride other New England Tour

de Cure rides for training without raising additional funds. Contact

the ride office to register. Other ride dates are:

Gloucester, MA - May 22, 2010

Narragansett, RI - June 6, 2010

North Haven, CT - June 12, 2010

Kennebunk, ME - June 13, 2010

Tour de Cure is a series of fundraising cycling events held in 43

states nationwide to benefit the American Diabetes Association.

The Tour is a ride, not a race, with routes designed for everyone from

the occasional rider to the experienced cyclist. Whether participants

ride 10 miles or 100 miles*, they will travel a route supported from

start to finish with rest stops, food to fuel the journey and fans to

cheer them on!

Lynne will also be riding with the Tallygear Tummietote on.....
