TSURURADIO’s Super Awesome NO-FRILLS Bike Ride for Breast Cancer on April 3rd!!!

How’s THAT for a Bike Ride name??? Awesome!!! Exactly.

Today is World Cancer Day, so I couldn’t think of a better time to make this announcement. On Saturday, April 3rd, TSURURADIO will be hosting a Super Awesome NO-FRILLS Bike Ride for Breast Cancer!!!

The Idea

I’ve been wanting to do this ever since my first charity bike ride, the Tour de Cure for diabetes. There is something amazing about a bunch of people getting on their bikes, riding around together, making new friends, exploring new areas & routes, maybe discovering what they can do physically, and all the while raising money & awareness for a great cause.

Now, I’m just one guy so I wanted to keep this extremely simple & super-minimalist. So here’s how this is going to work:

  1. April 3rd, you show up BEFORE 9AM with your bike, your helmet, and $20.
  2. You donate $20 and pick out a 10, 25, or 50 mile route map.
  3. At or just after 9am, we all ride out together!
  4. Follow your chosen route map, have fun, make friends, enjoy a nice April morning, until you are done. YOU ARE AWESOME!!!
  5. We count the money raised, announce it here, and give it ALL to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure group!

The Details

  • NO-FRILLS? Yes, no-frills. This is an unsupported, no pomp, no circumstance, NO SPONSORS, no free stuff, no prizes, no cowbells, & therefore no expense (except copying the maps), meaning more (actually ALL) money goes to the charity!

  • LOCATION? COLUMBUS, OH!!! Actual start address is in planning. I have a few options for a start place, but I want to make sure it’s a good start place with places to buy drinks at and with convenience stores/gas stations along the way.

NOTE: If you are a Columbus OH route maker and want to help, please email me at TSURURADIO@GMAIL.COM now!

  • HELMETS? Yes. You look like a dork? Get over it, we will ALL look like dorks together. This is for cancer, not for your ego. And bring hydration, bring a spare tube, bring a working bike, bring your cell phone in case you need to be picked up. i.e. BE PREPARED! The more prepared you are, the more fun you will have! I promise that!

  • HOW BIG WILL THIS BE? I have no idea. If we raise $20 because I’m the only guy out there on April 3rd, or if we suddenly have 1,000 people trying to ride together, it will be a success in my book. Let’s just do this!

  • WHAT IF IT RAINS? Wear a rain cape and expect to get wet. As my Mama Tsuru would say, HTFU or “Harden The Fuck Up” (she had quite the sailor mouth). This is for charity, a little rain is NOTHING compare to what our moms, sisters, wives, friends, and even a few guys have to go through.

I will send out updates to this page on the blog, Twitter, and Facebook. So subscribe, follow, and/or friend us now!

Excited??? ME TOO!! Stay tuned, okay? More details to come!!!! We have 2 months….. WE CAN DO THIS!!!! WOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Cheers & let’s ride,

Aaron (aka Tsuru)
