Tour de Habitat 2010

tour de habitat 2010The annual Tour de Habitat bike ride is coming up September 26. From the brochure:

The Tour de Habitat gives riders a choice of pedaling a 100, 50, 25 or family-friendly 10 mile route to benefit Capital District Habitat for Humanity. All rides start and finish at the Albany Pump Station, with a post-ride reception featuring food and beer.

The entry fee is $100, for which the org is hoping people will get sponsors. The fee includes "riding a fully supported route, pre- and post-ride meals at the Albany Pump Station, two pints of any Evans beer after the ride and a souvenir t-shirt."

Comments

I've done the 50 mile course twice and it is a beautiful ride. I must admit, however, I prefer finishing the ride on my bicycle rather than in an ambulance. Just saying.

PS - I'm having that separated shoulder fixed this year and won't be riding. Which doesn't mean I won't be enjoying a few pints at the Pump Station.

I feel that when people don't confront inappropriate behavior it sends a signal that it is tolerated. I often speak up in situations like these, depending on my reading of the situation. If we consider ourselves part of a community we all have a role to play in signaling what is and isn't appropriate behavior.
