Saturday, June 5th is our last training ride together for the 2010 CARTI Tour de Rock. It has been a real blast! We estimate that over 41,000 training miles were covered this season and hundreds of cyclists shared the road in preparation for the ride on June 12th.
This Saturday is supposed to be HOT! Wear sunscreen! Bring water bottles!
Now most of you are planning on riding with the Advanced Ride (30-, 50-, 62- or 100 mile routes). Did you know that the TDR also includes the Arkansas Childrens Hospital Family Fun Ride on June 12th? Encourage your family and friends to dust off their bike and join the festivities. The Family Fun ride starts at 10:00 a.m. and is a relaxed, leisurely ride from Burns Park to the Big Dam Bridge and over to the ACH rest stop. When they get back to the finish line, there will be plenty of food, live music and tons of celebrating. Registration via the CARTI website – click on Calendar of Events and choose Tour de Rock.
