2 long distance ride opportunities for tiddlers

I run 2 charity rides for small bikes.

First is the LakeErieLoop, a 650 mile sprint around Lake Erie in one day. This year we'll be holding LEL-X, our 10th anniversary ride, the weekend of June 7-9. The proceeds go to the Aluminum Cans for Burned Children (ACBC), a fund for pediatric burn victims. So far we've raised over $30,000 for the kids and we're not slowing down. Four classes for everything from mopeds to 200cc "big bore" bikes. Info is available at www.lakeerieloop.com or autos.groups.yahoo.com/group.lakeerieloop.

The second is a bit more ambitous, a balls to the wall run from Manhattan, NY to Redondo Beach, Ca., the same start/end points of the legendary Cannonball of the Brock Yates and Dan Gurney race of the 1970's that protested the national 55MPH speed limit of that time. Motorcycle size on this one is 250cc's for modern bikes and 360cc's for bikes 30 years old and older. It will start on May 4th and finish whenever the rider reaches the left coast beach at the Porto Fino Hotel. Billed as the Real Cannonball, the proceeds will be split 50/50 between the Wounded Warrior Project and ACBC. Entries so far are a couple 250 Ninjas, 360 Hondas, even a kitted Aprilia RS50! Go to sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/trctd for additional info.

Hope to see ya there!
