Pedalin’ With Polly Wogg in Tour de Cure June 3rd

The things I get myself into.  First it was rappelling over the Adirondack Bank Building for Special Olympics.  Now it’s bike riding for the American Diabetes Association in the Tour de Cure June 3rd at Verona Beach State Park.  Since it’s such a great cause, I couldn’t say no, but bikes and I just don’t get along. The last time I was on a bicycle was when I was 15 and it ended with a concussion and a trip to the emergency room.  Hopefully now that I’m older, I’m wiser too, so I’ll wear a helmet.

Kick off Event
The Tour de Cure kickoff event is March 13th at Schuss Ski and Bike Shop on Commercial Drive in New Hartford from 5-8pm.  I’ll be heading over to Schuss to get hooked up with the correct bike, helmet and some sort of padding for my butt.  I can already hear it complaining about sitting on a bicycle seat for 15 MILES!  And 15 miles is the shortest distance.  Hope I make it 5!

I’m Riding For
I’ll be riding in honor of my father in law who had diabetes and passed away over a year ago, as well as Bigg Vinny from Trailer Choir.  Vinny suffered from diabetes before going on ‘The Biggest Loser.’  If he can go from over 400 pounds to less than 200, I can ride 15 miles – I hope.
