I dont have a bike rack for my car. I sometimes put a blanket on the top of my car and put the bike on the blanket and bungee cord it down. It works. i do have roof racks so there is something to bungee it to.

I would love to join in. I haven't ridden a bike in a while, so it will force me to do so. But I am worried about the money. I don't have much readily available to me right now. I will have to check out the site and see what the requirements are.

Kimmipe - I will probably raise much more than my $200........... so I think we are ok as long as the team total is raised. I think all you would have to do is pay the registration fee.
Once you are part of a team........................ all we need to do is reach team goals. Thats how they did it last year. Of course the website encourages everyone to raise that $200 minimum.

I would love to join in, but it requires a minimum $200 fundraised, and with my fundraising for Komen and the Cancer Concern Center, I can't add one more right now! I will be sure to donate to the team before race day, tho!

Sounds like fun. I don't have a bike, but have time to get one. Emailed my DS and DIL to see if they would like to participate. They have bikes and like to do family rides, so we can make it a family outing. And it's on a Saturday, won't have to rule it out because of Worship Service on Sunday!

It sounds like a wonderful idea- sept 21st, I have a lot of time to get in some kinda shape! would you give us detail about reg.

My Mom had diabetes and it was one of her causes of death in 1999. Her head dr told us in is very difficult to make people understand why this diseases is so deathly. Once it takes hold, all other organs can be effected.

We all need a jumpstart sometimes to our fitness goals. This event is a bike tour along the Jersey shore. We did it last year and it was wonderful..Everyone has the option of riding 5 miles - 10 miles - 35 miles or 65 miles. I did 35 miles and it was terrific.
Its NOT a race.................... its a bike at your own pace ride along the shoreline. So much fun and very well organized with snack stops and water rest areas along the way.
\It is a fund raiser for diabetes................. and there is a registration fee . I will make the fund raising goal $1000 and do my best to raise those funds alone..... so you dont have to feel pressured to tap friends for donations. Of course all donations are welcomed and appreciated.

Think about it................. you have alot of time to register................ but I would love to get a spark team going again this year. Our Jersey shore deserves it - and diabetes is a great cause too.

Lets have this as our annual team event. emoticon
I have already registered and our team is Spark NJ. Join me.
