Final Days Until Tour de Cure Sunday
Ok, I'm starting to get nervous.  We're just five days away from the Tour de Cure bike ride from Verona Beach State Park and I don't think I'm ready. 15 miles is a long way for someone who hasn't been on a bike in almost 20 years.  I've been out a few times but not enough to be prepared for a 15 mil…
Polly Wogg’s Tour de Cure Update
It's National Ride to Work Day and 450 riders are using the day to ride 100 miles in the Ride for Missing Children today.  But in a few weeks it'll be time for the Tour de Cure.  Thankfully I only have to ride 15 miles.
Polly Wogg Prepares For Tour de Cure, One Month Away
It's getting closer.  The Tour de Cure at Verona Beach State Park is June 3rd and I haven't really started training yet.  Oh, I've been on my bike from Schuss Ski & Bike Shop a few times, but not enough to be ready for a 15 mile ride.  However, the weather hasn't been all that nice recently.  I …

Tour de Cure Focus on David Santmier
As the Tour de Cure gets closer, we're focusing on those affected by diabetes.  I'm riding for Trailer Choir's Big Vinny, my later father in law and my uncle Christopher, who I just found out Easter weekend, also has the disease.  But who are you, or will you be riding for?
Shelly Santmier, who just …

Trailer Choir’s Big Vinny Pushes Polly Wogg For Tour de Cure [AUDIO]
There's no time like the present.  Since we've had such unusually nice weather in March, I thought I'd get a jump start on training for the Tour de Cure June 3rd.  Since I haven't been on a bike in 15+ years I thought I'd go slow to start. I wouldn't want to ruin the bike Dan at Schuss Ski & Bik…
Polly Wogg Helps Kick Off ADA Tour de Cure
And I'm off.  Well, almost.  The ADA Tour de Cure at Verona Beach State Park June 3rd, has officially kicked-off and the goal this year is $250,000, 725 riders and 100 volunteers.  It's all an effort to stop diabetes.
Polly Wogg Gets Bike for Tour de Cure [VIDEO]
If I'm going to ride 15 miles in the Tour de Cure, I'll need a bike.  Thankfully Dan at Schuss Ski & Bike Shop in New Hartford has bikes and knows all about them.  He even set me up with special biking shoes and shorts with the padding in all the rights spots, thank goodn…
Pedalin’ With Polly Wogg in Tour de Cure June 3rd
