Tour de Habitat 2011

tour de habitat 2010Here's something to look ahead to: the 2011 Tour de Habitat.

The annual cycling ride is a fundraiser for Capital District Habitat for Humanity. It gives riders the option of traveling a 100, 50, 25 or 10 mile route. The ride is September 18.

The entry fee is $100 -- and the hope is that riders will get sponsors to help cover the fee (and then some). The fee includes a fully-supported route, t-shirt, and -- because Evans Ale is a sponsor -- a pre- and post-race meal at the Pump Station, as well as two post-race pints of beer.

We saw today that Jen is interested in riding this year, so we decided to sponsor her. AOA is matching $50 of the money she's able to raise toward the entry fee -- so head on over and hit her a few bucks.

Thanks, again AOA! i can't wait to ride in my first ever bike race for such a great cause!

@ Jen -remember, this is a tour, not a race. Enjoy the ride and encouragement from other riders. Right after our son was born, my wife did the 50 mile and enjoyed the route quite a bit! George Di Piro from Evans is very thoughtful on setting up the route.

Is a map of the course available?

Route maps are available by clicking the appropriate links at http://EvansAle.com

Also, there is only a post-ride meal and beer, no pre-ride food.

And yes, it's a tour, not a race. You are free to go as fast as you like, but there are no prizes for getting back quickly.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
