Tour de Cure training ride

Yesterday was the first Tour de Cure Portland training ride. These training rides start months before the actual Tour de Cure so people who want to build up their fitness and ride a long distance can build up to it. We could not have had better weather for the ride yesterday it was great!

Not only was this the first Tour de Cure training ride but I led the ride for the first time. We started in Sellwood at the American Diabetes Association offices and rode on the Springwater Corridor and the Eastbank Esplanade out and back for a total of 10 miles. There were people of many ages and abilities there and it was great to see everyone and their enthusiasm.

There are more training rides to come in the next months, one every weekend they happen on Saturdays once you have signed up for the Tour de Cure Portland emails are sent out to let participants know when the rides are. Next ride is Sauvies Island. This ride is about 12 miles and it is a great fun ride.
