This Saturday, April 18th, the Tour de Lis ride is taking place on the New Orleans lakefront. If you haven’t heard about this ride before, it happens every year and is open to cyclists of all ages and ability levels. It’s not a race, but ride to raise money and awareness. Last year they raised $165,000 that went to organizations helping cancer victims and their families with treatment, fiancial assistance, support, education, and research.
Pre-registration closed today at 1 (sorry I didn’t post this sooner), but if you show up before the ride on Saturday, you can donate $50 to participate. Ride begins at 8 am and ends at noon.
