Tour de Stooges deadlines approaching

Tour de StoogesI'm starting to get geared up for the Tour de Stooges. My house is cluttered with water jugs, tire pumps, first aid kits and two cases of spray paint. Early next week, food will be added to the piles of supplies,

We're expecting another nice crowd on Saturday, May 2, at Lindendale Park in Highland, Ill., for the 12th running of the Tour de Stooges. We hope you can join us this year on one of our five routes -- 15, 22, 31, 42 and 64 miles -- and for lunch and all the slapstick comedy you can stand.

Two pre-registration deadlines are fast approaching. For those of you who want to register by mail, you needed to get your forms filled out and in the mail by Friday (April 24). For those of you who want to register online, the deadline is noon April 29.

The cost of the ride is $30 for adults and $20 for children 5-12. If you pre-register for the ride, we'll throw in the T-shirt pictured above. Click on the picture to see a bigger image of the shirt.

If you wait until the day of the ride, the cost of the ride remains the same, but you'll have to buy the shirt separately for $20. It's definitely worth your while to pre-register for the event!

I'm sure many of you are waiting to see what the forecast is for May 2 to commit yourselves. If you were on last year's ride, you'll definitely remember the west wind that blew 15 to 25 mph all day long. We hope the day's a bit calmer so everyone will enjoy the ride!
