Saratoga Springs Tour de Cure 2014

The 2014 edition of the Tour de Cure brought together more than 2,600 riders to tour the beautiful roads of Saratoga County, New York. The American Diabetes Association event raised more than $1.5 million in the fight against diabetes, and proved that the bicycle is a formidable tool in sustaining a vibrant community. tour.diabetes.org

The Maine Lobster Ride 2013

There are bike rides that are well-presented, and there are bike rides that take place in locations of immense beauty. For the 12th year, the Bicycle Coalition of Maine served up a super winner with both … and perfect weather and a classic lobster roll lunch to boot. It took place on July 21st, with rides heading both north and south from Rockland (and some comprising both routes). Definitely a class act, and one that serves to stimulate interest in the upcoming ride of the season: the inaugural BikeMaine tour in September. Check it out.

A Truly Awesome Journey

A few days ago, we had the distinct pleasure of riding with the team from Our Ability, accompanying Messrs John Robinson and Doug Hamlin as they powered their bikes along the route of the Erie Canal — more than 350 miles from near Buffalo to Albany. What makes this so special (and hugely inspiring) is that John has no lower arms or legs, and Doug has lost the use of his legs. What an amazing tribute to the power of the bicycle and the human spirit.

Photos were prepared in cooperation with the New York Bicycling Coalition.
