The Deadline for "Super Saver" prices is Apr 30, '10.
This 2nd Annual event has been updated with a Fiesta theme for 2010.  El Indio Restaurant will be catering the included Fiesta Mexican Buffet, right at the finishline for all registered riders.

Richard Duquette Cycling Insurance Tip: 
"Cyclists: Don't Skimp on Insurance," advises Attorney Richard Duquette.  He recommends buying strong automobile Uninsured/Underinsured Motorists (UM/UIM) coverage, because it covers you in most cases if you're hit while riding your bicycle.  Read the complete article, along with other bicycle legal issues, at www.911law.com.  Richard's Bicycle Blog offers more sage advice.  Richard Duquette can be reached at 760-730-0500.
