Ride Report: JDRF 2012
This is a charity ride to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
How fun is it? Well that depends on how you look at it... the event itself is very energy packed, lots of cheering and loud music, and the money raised goes to a great cause. And this year - dancing girls! Yay!
The actual riding... welllll, not so much fun. 6 minutes on a stationary bike trying to do as much distance as possible. Naturally, you set the tension to the point your knees won't blow off and spin like a gerbil at the highest cadence you can mustre. I managed about 130-140rpm for the 6 minutes, way faster than I would normally ever pedal... it was dizzying and unpleasant!
But all for a good cause and the dancing girls made up for it. You also get a snack after and a free water bottle.
