I was volunteering at a charity golf tournament this morning, and I heard about this ride benefiting the United Way of Durham Region.
Its a fully supported choose your distance ride through Durham. 60, 100 or 160k routes. It sounds like a lot of fun and I'm registering to do it. Its also only $60 to register before July 1st, i think at most its $80 if you decide to do it day of... So a lot less expensive than any of the other charity rides out there.
Would anyone else be interested in joining me? I think it would be great to get a BCC team in. The event details are at the URL below:
Cycling in the summer can be about casual riding, sprinting, spinning, big-ring hammerfests or what ever your chosen type of riding is. The BCC was founded for the sole purpose to network cyclists. It has grown into a successful club which accommodates Riders at almost all skill/fitness levels. Everyone should be able to participate and have fun at their respective levels.
