TDC2014 Group Ride – Vancouver Lake Park

Over 50 riders participated in the final Group Ride for Kris Bockmier (Tour Director, American Diabetes Association) and Rob Roark (founder and Ride Captain, Group Rides).  Could not ask for better weather, as we sent Rob off in lead, along with a big tub of Red Vines – the long-standing insider joke.  It’s the Red Vines addiction that indirectly got Rob involved with Tour de Cure in the first place.

Catching up with the Northern Cal cousins

A dinner stop with Fran Edgerley, Walt Edgerley (and the kids), Kim Lewis Krause, Chad Krause (and kids), and Andy Hirakawa.Unfortunately, the kids had too much popcorn at the movies before coming, so they couldn’t stick around long enough for me to remember to get my camera out. Also naturally, I have more pictures of Fran & Walt’s kids than anyone else. At least I’m consistent!
