Last year (2021) I rode a total of 7,033 miles.
As of 6/25/2022 I had ridden 3,431 miles (beginning 1/1/2022)
As of 8/30/2022, logged 4,698 miles, or 379 hours, 198,435 calories, 110,488 total ascent, averaging 19.18 miles per day. Trying to cut back a little to just over 6,000 per year. There just has to be more time for everything else!
Welcome to my Tour de Cure page!
> 6/25 Update: MADE IT TO 3,000. Hit 3,003.92 this morning! Last 7 days I rode 231.8 miles. I was really tired yesterday but today feeling a lot better. Had a bee sting me 2 days ago on my morning ride. First bee sting on a bike ride. The area below my right eye is still swollen and now itches. Now I can settling back to 15-20 miles a day for a while.

I am asking you to support me in the Tour de Cure® because finding a cure for diabetes is urgent and personally means so much to me.
This year Tour de Cure celebrates 30 years of making an impact in communities nationwide and I’m riding to champion the over 34 million Americans living with this terrible disease because they need our support.
Help Me Reach My Goal! When you donate you make an immediate impact:
- You spread awareness of the devastating effects of diabetes.
- You advocate for a child with diabetes to have the same learning opportunities at school.
- You fund life-saving research that will bring us closer to a cure.
- You provide access to community programs and free resources that help those living with diabetes.
By participating in the Tour de Cure, I hope to inspire others to join me in this vital mission.
Thank you for making a generous donation to this cause that is so important to me.
