I have been thinking about taking on this challenge since last year but was not sure if I could do it. Well, I took the plunge and will be riding from Houston to New Orleans within six days for a total of 537 miles (averaging of 88 miles per day). I depart Houston on May 4, 2014 and will roll into New Orleans on May 9. The training for this ride starts on Nov 1st of this year and goes all the way until the end of April 2014, A lot of time and miles will go into this. The Tour du Rouge supports the American Red Cross Chapters along the Gulf Coast from Houston to New Orleans.The American Red Cross provides emergency assistance when people are forced from their homes by fires, floods or other disasters. Please help me by donating to my fundraising, every little bit helps! I promise you that with my mental and physical strength I will make you proud. Let's do this together!!
