Anyone doing the Milwaukee Tour De Cure?
http://main.diabetes.org/site/TR?pg=entry&fr_id=3249

I raised a few hundred for the one in 2004, spent the night before at my sister's place in Milwaukee, then drove to the start only to have the cancel the ride due to rain, wind, tornadoes, floods, lightening, and hail. Didn't register last year because I still had a sour taste in my mouth.

I am a member of the Milwaukee Tour de Cure organizing committee. We have over 100 people signed up already. Could be well over 750 people on ride day.

New route this year, a lot more rural and picturesque.

I was there in 2004. First time we ever had to cancel for anything. Parts of the route were under three feet of water. Not fun.

It won't happen this year (we hope.)

the sour taste was more because i had to tell the people that donated the ride didn't take place. they all understood, but it was still not fun telling them.

glad to hear the ride is over rural areas. i am still not certain i will be doin it this year, but i hope to. my lil boy will be almost 10 months by then, so i wont feel as bad leaving him with my wife for the entire day.

yeah, 2004 was pretty scary. we scouted the ride the night before and saw areas under the river. i checked in and started looking for deour maps. then the tornado sirens went off...
