Start off the new year with a weekend charity ride. It is always fun to have a goal of a longer ride than one takes during their training rides. Also, the charity events are tax deductable while getting either a t-shirt or lunch or both. The next upcoming charity ride is on Febuary 12th for the Tour de Palm Springs. PS is a fun place to visit, eat, shop, hike AND bike. TdPS has lots of rides to choose from with a century, half century, twenty five miler and less. The weather is usually fantastic because the ride is in our east desert. Let members know of your intentions of biking in this large event (7,000 bikers!). So far Mike, Nancy, Dave, Gayle and Tom are heading to PS that weekend. See you on the 12th?
