Yesterday, June 5, 2010, the Buffalo, NY American Diabetes Association Tour de Cure bike ride was held. It started and ended at a local community college. I got there about 6:55 am and registered. I was riding the 100 km distance. We started at 7:30. For the first half of the route, the riders (about 75 doing the same distance) and I were going with the wind, along Lake Ontario. Eventually we made another right and headed back, against the wind. There was only 1 long hill but the wind was brutal coming back. I had caught a group of 5 other riders and I rode with them for 35+ miles. It was really fun. My team and I raised about $1000.
Today, was the JDRF Walk. It was nice, but I didn't know anyone there. Also, it was about 25 degrees cooler than yesterday and rainy. I did not collect pledges but made a significant donation myself.
Quite the type 1 diabetes weekend!
