Yesterday was the Houston Tour de Cure. As you might know, I have been training for several months for this event. And unfortunately the rides were canceled due to weather. Bummer! Though disappointed, I understand the cancellation because it has been very rainy the passed few days and the routes were very flooded and covered with debris.
Despite the rain out, they still had the after race activities. There was a lunch, live music, and various diabetes awareness booths. They served brisket, potato salad, green beans, and rolls. And the band played various tunes; from country music to Pink Floyd and Foo Fighters covers. So all in all it was a good day even though I did not get to ride. There is talk of rescheduling the ride for a later date but we’ll see what pans out.
On the bright side there were over 2,000 riders registered and were able to raise over $600,000. And team red (the team for people with diabetes) had over 300 riders and we were able to raise over $100,000. Which is awesome! It is great that we were able to raise so much money towards such a just cause. I am definitely planning on riding next year and hopefully we can raise even more money next year.
