Upcoming: 2014 Tour de Tryptophan

Hey all, still haven't figured out that post-Thanksgiving Day ride, or want a better option than the same old loop thing, consider the Tour de Tryptophan at the famous Fullerton Loop. This year's cause will benefit Brad 'Moose' Rasmussen, a fellow cyclist who suffered a spinal injury while riding the Big Bear Bike Park in July. Rasmussen has limited movement right now, but is determined to walk and ride again. Coming out and contributing to his medical expenses would be a step in the right direction.

The 'ride' begins at 11am on Friday and goes till noon on Saturday. You are free to ride as many, or as few laps (11.5 miles per) as you want. Heck, you don't even have to ride. Apparently the record is officially held by sixty year old Jim Cooke - 18 laps, which equals out to 207 miles.

There are many place to 'enter' the Fullerton Loop, but the ride's official start location is the upper parking lot at the Courthouse, on Berkeley Avenue, west of Harbor Blvd. Donations gratefully accepted.
