|2012 Tour de Cure Finish Line|
Last year, I rode in the Tour and was fortunate that quite a few friends donated to the ADA in support of my ride. I'm riding again this year but I've also canvassed local bike shops and fitness centers to encourage their support of the Tour. This morning, I staffed the Tour information booth at Spokane's Bike Swap.

|Beautiful Steel Pinarello|
I also managed to find a great cycling jacket for my stepson's 42nd birthday. There were a slew of nice bikes, but the real beauty was an 1990s steel Pinarello with a gorgeous pearlescent fade paint job. If only it had been in my size.

|Winter Training - Yuck!|
Helping to find a cure for diabetes is motivation enough for me, but I'd sure appreciate your support for my ride, the Tour de Cure, and the American Diabetes Association. If you can, please make a donation to the ADA at my Tour de Cure Web page
Thanks for reading, and thanks in advance for your help and friendship.
