2012 Tour de Cure

Team Gitchigumi Gear Mashers are at it again.  We will be in Minneapolis MN this weekend for the Tour de Cure.  It is a charity bicycle ride for diabetes.  Although riding for a good cause in an event like this is in itself reason enough to participate, the company provides an excellent bonus.  We will have the same size group this year, but Janice will not be riding and Brandon's wife Rebekah will be.  The above picture was from a multiple sclerosis we had ridden. Although the MS ride is a lot of fun, and I have personal friends that suffer from it, diabetes has family connection.  My mother suffers from diabetes as well as her six sisters.  During this event, any person that rides and also suffers from diabetes is referred to as a Red Rider.  The girl pictured above in the pink jersey has diabetes.  She is the captain of our team and I am proud to be riding with a Red Rider.

Lets get outdoors and have some fun!!
