Tour de Ed - Chico, CA - Feb 23
Filed under: general
Posted by: The Cyclofiend @ 9:02 pm

This came off the mojo wire from Gino -

 Hi NorCal/southern OR Riv folks,
 My friend, and the leader of Chico Velo for nearly as long as I’ve
 been alive, Ed McLaughlin sustained a severe spinal cord injury a
 little over a month ago during a regular group ride. He currently has
 no use of his legs, and a little use of one arm. If you’ve ever heard
 of the Chico Wildflower, or ridden it, Ed is the guts and brains
 behind that spectacular ride.
 
 The cycling community here in Chico is putting on a ride, called Tour
 De Ed (February 23rd), to raise money to help with his recovery.  So,
 if you’re in the area, you might consider coming to Chico for this
 ride.
 
 The Tour De Ed is a laid back and flat 20 miler, and follows the same
 course as the old Almond Blossom ride.  It takes you on an easy 20 or
 so mile ride on quiet country roads through the almond orchards when
 the trees are in full bloom (spring comes early in Chico!).
 
 The farmer’s market is rocking the same morning, and the ride starts
 late (10am) so you can chow down at one of the local eateries before
 the ride.

Cheers,
