Climb for a cure

LinkPrepare to suffer for a good cause -
In case you didn't see it over on the
Tall Tree Cycles Ride Log.

Tall Tree's Martin Kellen is riding the Ride to Conquer Cancer June 12-13th, so we're throwing down an opportunity to climb for the cause. We'll meet at the Gate (Gamelin) at 6pm sharp, and roll to the base of Fortune together. From there we'll TT to Champlain Lookout. This is a low key, funraiser for Cancer research, so lets all get out there and lay down our best.

Entry will be a by donation, $5 minimum.

There will definitely be a fixed gear category, so if you've got one its time to start thinking about your gearing. I vow to be there on my Steelwool Limited, running a 44x16. Brad has confirmed he'll be climbing with his younger daughter on the back of their tandem, towing his older daughter on a trail-a-bike, while Greg will be on his dirt jump bike standing all the way. These guys personify the spirit of the event. Its clear that a 'hill climb' bike is hardly required. More info to come, stay tuned.
